Product description


A typeface can convey a sense of urgency, formality or humour, and it is almost impossible for typefaces not to give character. "Designing Typefaces" introduces a new level of meaning to the mysterious world of type design. It includes extensive interviews with twelve international practitioners, all providing their unique approach to the subject, from the broad sweep of intention to the minute detail of stroke thickness. The book also deals with computer-based type design, licensing, letter spacing and many more factors essential to the art. It also includes a practical tutorial section to provide the reader with step-by-step instructions to designing their own fonts. Design and typography students, practitioners and those interested in the fascinating area of typography will find "Designing Typefaces" essential and worthwhile reading.
