Designing Type: Second Edition

Author(s): Karen Cheng


This comprehensive guide to type design is hailed as a 'must-have' for typographers, graphic designers and students and has been fully refreshed and updated with the introduction of more contemporary typefaces, more explanatory diagrams and a closer connection between text and corresponding image. The new edition of Designing Typealso features more in-depth discussion of the processes behind developing typefaces and the basic issues that need to be taken into consideration such as visual principles and letter construction, optical compensation and legibility, and the relationships between letters and shapes in a font. This is a valuable reference for both experienced professionals and novice designers.
