Reviews - What do customers think about The Fundamentals of Typography (Basics Design)?

A Concise but Complete Course In What Type can do.  Jun 19, 2006
One of the hardest things for a beginning designer to understand is that there are reasons for their being so many styles of type, and so many things that you can do to adjust or modify that typeface to produce the appearance and effect that you are trying to produce.

Today with the ease with which typefaces are produced using computers it is especially important that the designer working on a book, a poster, an advertisement fully understand the impact that his decisions are making on the readers.

This rather small and inexpensive book, only 175 pages long does an excellent job of introducing typography to the beginning designer. It is filled with examples that illustrate the point the author is discussing. It is rather easy reading as the author tends to show examples rather than spending a lot of time describing something. Many of the illustrations he uses are from award winning designs. The information is concise, but complete. Here is a complete course in typography for the beginning designer.
