Informative. In depth. ( )

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. ( )

Beautifully written and typeset. I thought reading about type would be boring. Not in this book. ( )

Thinking with type is worthy of adding to your library; it's essential if you salivate when you look at well-designed and well-chosen type.

Thinking with Type is written with warmth and clarity. Together with its compact size and affordable price, the book is destined to become an essential part of many typographers' and designers' libraries.

"The organization of letters on a blank page or screen is one of the designer's most basic challenges. What kind of font to use? How big? How should those letters, words, and paragraphs be aligned, spaced, ordered, and shaped? This new text, created by leading design educator and critic Ellen Lupton, provides clear and focused guidance for those learning or brushing up on their typographic skills. Informative essays are followed by practical demonstrations that bring typography to life with direct, engaging commentary. Examples of work by influential practitioners show how to be inventive within a system of typographic form - and how to break the rules."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
