Product description

From the Back Cover

A practical introduction to typography, this book analyzes the basic principles and applications of type. From measuring type and classifying typefaces to organizing text on a page and understanding grid systems, the author covers everything that the beginning student of graphic design needs to know. In addition, he includes a brief history of typography, numerous examples to illustrate the points raised, and a series of useful exercises to help readers put basic principles into practice.

Engagingly written, this book is an invaluable resource for the beginning graphic designer and a useful refresher far the more experienced one.

--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
