Overview

Our all time best selling book is now available in a revised and expanded second edition. Thinking with Type is the definitive guide to using typography in visual communication, from the printed page to the computer screen. This revised edition includes forty-eight pages of new content, including the latest information on style sheets for print and the web, the use of ornaments and captions, lining and non-lining numerals, the use of small caps and enlarged capitals, as well as information on captions, font licensing, mixing typefaces, and hand lettering. Throughout the book, visual examples show how to be inventive within systems of typographic form—what the rules are and how to break them. Thinking with Type is a type book for everyone: designers, writers, editors, students, and anyone else who works with words. The popular online companion to Thinking with Type (www.thinkingwithtype.com) has been revised to reflect the new material in the second edition.

I am an up an coming graphic designer. And if your serious about design then this is a must have. Not only do you get some theory on the use of type but you also get a lot of practical examples too. Its breaks down the structure of type, the origins of type, and gives you a lot of examples of the best application for different kinds of type. The difference between an average designer and a great designer is in their type use. This book shows you how to fully utilize and get the most out type.

I had to get this book for computer class, but I'm NEVER gonna use this book for my personal profit. It's only history of how the letters were created, that's it, I personally don't do anything with that information. No one in my class likes that book. If you're into types, sure, it might be interesting to have, but otherwise, not worth it. Too expensive just for historical facts and nothing practical to learn...from my point of view.
