Typography Workbook: A Real-World Guide to Using Type in Graphic Design is published by Rockport Publishers in January 2011. This book has 240 pages in English, ISBN-13 978-1592533015.
New in paperback, The Typography Workbook provides an at-a-glance reference book for designers on all aspects of type.
The book is part of Rockport’s popular Workbook series of practical and inspirational workbooks that cover all the fundamental areas of the graphic design business. This book presents an abundance of information on type – the cornerstone of graphic design – succinctly and to the point, so that designers can get the information they need quickly and easily.
Whereas many other books on type are either very technical or showcase oriented, this book offers ideas and inspiration through hundreds of real-life projects showing successful, well-crafted usage of type. The book also offers a variety of other content, including choosing fonts, sizes, and colors; incorporating text and illustrations; avoiding common mistakes in text usage; and teaching rules by which to live (and work) by.
