"Anyone who would letterspace lower case
would steal sheep"
Frederick Goudy (1865 - 1947), type designer
This classic handbook is all new, and updated with lavish graphics and the all too important lessons about typography that no self-respecting designer should be
without. I preach and preach the understanding of good typography. I preached buying the first edition of this book, and I'll continue to preach buying the second edtion of this book.
If you every wondered which font to use, or, more specifically how to use it, then this book is for you.
Ingram says it better than we could so take their word for it:
aspects of typography, including the history and mechanics of type, how to train
your eye to recognize and choose typefaces, and how to use space and layout to improve
overall communication. Because type reaches across all boundaries and continually
evolves, this edition is revised and updated to include new chapters on Web typography
and other forms of online text display. You need no previous knowledge of typography
to enjoy this book and apply its tenets to your daily work. A perennial bestseller
since the first edition was published in 1993, Stop Stealing Sheep will draw you
in with its beautiful design and layout, which makes liberal use of more than 200
illustrations and photographs.
"Stop Stealing Sheep, Second Edition is a unique, entertaining,
and educational tour through the most basic unit of written communication: type.
World-renowned type experts Erik Spiekermann and E.M. Ginger explain in everyday
laymen's terms what type is and how you can use it to enhance the legibility, meaning,
and aesthetic level of your work. They elegantly touch on all
When we talk about essential learning for all designers this is one of the books
that comes to mind.
