Thinking with Type
A Critical Guide for Designers, Writers, Editors, & Students
This book is an overall guide to typography, covering everything from nomenclature to complex design principles. As a typography-obsessed designer, this has been my go-to guide for at least the past five years, helping me figure out innovative and aesthetically pleasing solutions whenever I get stuck on a deliverable. This book is a definite must-have for every typography enthusiast.
Thinking with Type is the definitive guide to using typography in visual communication, from the printed page to the computer screen. This revised edition includes forty-eight pages of new content, including the latest information on style sheets for print and the web, the use of ornaments and captions, lining and non-lining numerals, the use of small caps and enlarged capitals, as well as information on captions, font licensing, mixing typefaces, and hand lettering. Throughout the book, visual examples show how to be inventive within systems of typographic form—what the rules are and how to break them. Thinking with Type is a type book for everyone: designers, writers, editors, students, and anyone else who works with words. The popular online companion to Thinking with Type (www.thinkingwithtype.com) has been revised to reflect the new material in the second edition.
