Product description

Review

If you want a comprehensive grounding in the fundamentals of typography or an accessible, concise reference guide, this book is for you. --Type Worship

Type Matters! … is physically satisfying … pleasing to the touch, the nose, the eye, and when actually read, the hungry mind. --Blog Critics

This book is perfectly positioned to ease the newbie into the world of typography... it is a learner's bible. --Seattle Post Intelligencer

In short, Type Matters! is an indispensable guide to the basics of typography that no budding graphic designer should be without. --The Point

If you have an interest in typography, or know someone who is, pick up a copy or give it as a gift. It will make its new owner very grateful indeed. --Urban Bachelorette

The book's soft leather cover opens to a series of well-designed pages, the knowledge of type embedded in lines of examples. Introductory concepts like weight and letter spacing are paired with lesser-known bits to demonstrate what ultimately constitutes an elegantly executed page, as well as what gets in the way. --Cool Hunting

These may be simple tips, but they could change the way the world reads the writing you want to present. --Columbus Dispatch
