From the bookshelf: Designing with Type
I am always thirsty for knowledge. Sometimes I come across an art book and I just have to have it. Other times I realize my classes are lacking in a good book on the subject, so I go find one myself. For typography 1, I really wasn’t understanding the classifications so I bought “Designing With Type. The essential guide to typography”
This book is great because it has the history of type in a easy to understand language and has examples as well. It has all the important vocabulary of type such as the anatomy of the strokes, kerning, leading etc. It even has creative ways to use type in your art work.
I strongly suggest this book if you are interested in a good visual book on type.
