Want your reports and other documents to look as good – and as readable – as possible? Do you know the rules for good typography? Type Matters! is for all users of typography – from students and professionals to anyone who does any layout design on a computer.
The book is arranged into three chapters: an introduction to the basics of typography, headline and display type, and setting text. Within each chapter there are sections devoted to particular principles or problems, such as selecting the right typeface, leading and the treatment of numbers. Examples throughout show precisely what makes good typography and what doesn’t.
