Detail in Typography PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Detail in Typography free pdf An attractive, interesting layout can certainly attract and please the reader- but when the details are not good, reading requires more effort and any pleasure is shortlived. Detail in Typography is a concise and close-up view of the subject. It considers all the elements that constitute a column of text letters, words, the line, and the space around these elements - and it discusses what is essential for the legibility of text. Yet this is more than a guide to correct typography. How is it, Hochuli asks, that text can be set perfectly and yet look insufferably dull? Answers may be found here, not least in the way the book itself has been set and produced. Detail in Typography was first published in 1987, in seven different languages. This is a fully revised and extended edition.
