5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Theory Book, 27 Aug. 2009
This review is from: Rules for Compositors and Readers at the University Press, Oxford (Hardcover)
Many years ago - before Apple Macs came on the scene, Graphic Designers designed and typesetters did the typesetting. Typesetters were a very knowledge bunch of people and knew all the rules included in this book. Sadly this no longer occurs - this book should be read by everyone involved in print - even Graphic Designers. It will teach you the correct formatting.
It will tell you where to correctly use Italic and Roman type; the difference between an en-rule and em-rule; correct use of Quotation Marks; why there should be a minimum of five characters on the last line of a paragraph and that a divided word should not end a right-hand page. This is just a small selection of the gems contained within this book.
If you want to ensure your type looks correct on the printed page - then read this book.
