Overview

Typography Workbook is the second in Rockport's popular Workbook series, which provides practical and inspirational workbooks that cover all the fundamental areas of the graphic design business. This book presents an abundance of information on type -- the cornerstone of graphic design -- succinctly and to the point, so that designers can get the information they need quickly and easily. Whereas many other books on type are either very technical or showcase oriented, this book is accessible yet hardworking by offering the reader ideas and inspiration through hundreds of real-life projects. Each project features well-crafted type that has succeeded, and the text teaches you how to choose fonts, sizes, and colors; incorporate text and illustrations; and avoid common mistakes in text usage. It also teaches you rules to live by, and points out hints on when to break them.
