Fonts, typography

August 15, 2008

For a good introductory book to typography, you can’t go past Robin Williams’ The Non-Designer’s Type Book. I read it a few months ago, and even though I thought I knew ‘a bit about type’, I still learned a lot. My assessment: You’ll never look at type the same way again!

While you’re at it, take a look at Robin’s other popular book, The Non-Designer’s Design Book. My assessment: Lots of “of course” moments, but that doesn’t detract from the book. Far from it. This book gives the reasons why some design elements work and other don’t. Lots of examples.
