The Elements of
Typographic Style

by Robert Bringhurst

Creating beautiful typography is probably one of the most demanding challenges facing anyone who publishes visual communications. No matter who you are, and how much experience you have, if you design visual pages this is an essential addition to your tool box. Author Robert Bringhurst gives expert advice, example and understanding on designing with type.

The Elements of Typographic Style includes:
* history and background on many type families
* artistic and practical perspectives of using various faces
* Considerations for the correct typeface
* Rhythm, proportion, and harmony in type layouts
* Selecting and combining type
* Designing section heads, subheads, footnotes, and tables
* Modifications, applying kerning and adjustments for legibility
* Special characters, punctuation and diacritical marks.

This is a very worthwhile book for anyone -- amateur or pro alike -- who uses type.
