Descrizione

Our all-time best selling book is now available in a revised and expanded second edition. 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 companion website to Thinking with Type (www.thinkingwithtype.com.) has been revised to reflect the new material in this second edition.

Recensioni dei lettori

  • (4/5)
    Not terribly in-depth, but a good introduction to the concepts of page design (whether paper or web) and typography. Most of which I knew but this is nicely condensed with some examples scattered along the way. I would recommend it to people getting into typography or design, proabably too simple for someone with experience but a good primer.
  • (5/5)
    Beautifully written and typeset. I thought reading about type would be boring. Not in this book.
  • (4/5)
    I've read many, many books on typography and I still learned new things from this one. The section on individual letters is very strong, including information on the parts of a letter and on the history of typefaces, with more information on 20th century typefaces than I've seen in comparable reference works.
  • (3/5)
    Good, but just not what I expected. Has explanations and discussion between examples, sharing ideas on letterform, text, and use of grid. Includes history and good points on computer and web-based usage. But I found I like other type books better (i.e. Carl Dair's 'Design With Type')
