Product description

From the Back Cover

Ever wonder why some type looks more professional, more sophisticated than other type? The answer lies in the rules and techniques developed for professional typesetting. Not surprisingly, those methods are far different than the training given in Typing 101.

This book not only lays down the principles governing traditional type, but explains the logic behind them. By following the guidelines explained here, anyone using a personal computer to produce type can create beautiful, sophisticated pages.
