Description

Designed to provide an introductory grounding in Typography, The Complete Typographer teaches the essentials for the effective use of type - technical expertise and historical knowledge, an understanding of the functional and aesthetic qualities of different typefaces, and the organization of typographic space. This new edition features undergraduate and postgraduate student work alongside the work of established professionals, so that students can compare their own work with that of their peers and study the work of experts. Other useful tools include study notes at the end of each section, assignments set tasks for the reader, an expanded section on new media typography, and illustrations from both historical and contemporary sources.
