"I've purchased and read just about every book on typography written over the last twenty-five years. Ilene Strizver's Type Rules is one of the best. It's a book that will prove its value time and again."
— Allan Haley, Director of Words and Letters, Monotype Imaging
"Type Rules is a must-have book for students and professionals alike. I highly recommend it."
— Prof. Ed Benguiat, world-renowned type designer and educator, School of Visual Arts
"Type Rules! is a comprehensive source of information about the technicalities and art of typography. Strizver really knows her "type" and her expertise is clear as she ranges across topics from the history of typography and its nomenclature to recent developments in proprietary and computer generated typefaces. She has written this book for practitioners, positioning it as "the designer's guide to professional typography." She explains "what to do" with type and "how to do type". She unashamedly focus on MAC computers because that's what she uses, and that's what the design community mostly uses. It's a book with design in mind, not just because that's it's target market, but because its presented in a smart layout, with oodles of example of practical workman-like type, as well as type of the more artistic, original and intriguing variety."
