4.0 out of 5 stars for English (and German) readers 22 July 2008
By Alde Exfoisrge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a great analytical work by a master of modern typography. This book is meant to be read. The visuals by themselves are not very informative: they accompany the text, like the final premises of very simple yet profound arguments on good typography. I would recommend it to anyone interested in penetrating the craft of typography.
As a native French speaker, I have to say that the French translation is far less than satisfactory. Continual poor syntax, bad use of key words and use of foreign words make it incomprehensible in many instances. I finally resorted to the English translation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thinking Typography. Emil Ruder way 27 Mar. 2011
By THINKING FORM - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The design book that raised my adrenaline. I had never realized the real of power of white space and a simple 3 column grid. In this book, Ruder's philosophy in typography was explained into 19 chapters, showing a multitude of possible ways to see and develop in typography. He emphasised on the rule of typography which stresses on legibility and reproducibility.

Read and feel it. You won't regret to buy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Typographie. 5 Jan. 2011
By Andrew Maher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I got this book late in my second year of study. While other reviews here call it useless, I believe this book is one of the most important I've read.

Typographie sets out in very simple terms to desicribe the fundamentals of managing type, in both an artistic and practical sense. It is filled with insight into what is form and counterform, the typographers role in book production, how to construct contrasts with very simple means. If you're curious about typography and modern design methods then this is the book for you.

I found it insightful and a vital read for furthering my ability to design well.

This book was comes with the guarantee of the master type Designer Adrian Frutiger.

Pick it up at a local library and see if you agree, but please do yourself a favor and read it!
