Books Info:

Shaping Text free pdf "Shaping Text" takes a practical and broad approach to typography. It is aimed at design students and graphic designers, and also at those who are concerned with content: writers, editors, and publishers. Showing a wide range of examples from first-rate designers across the world, the book examines why and how typographic designs work well in a given context. Particular attention is given to the team play between the text itself--written language--and the design--the shaping of the text--to form a new, multilevel visual message with a complex content.
