Jul 10, 2009I was intrigued by the film "Helvetica" and decided to try one of MIT's free online courses http://tiny.cc/a4Xr0 "Fundamentals of Computational Media Design." This is the textbook. It's fascinating.
Oct 24, 2014I bought this book for a class on typography in college. It gives all the basic rules and information about typography which is very helpful for graphic designers or anyone else who wants to learn more about typography. Great book for reference!
Jan 25, 2010A much more in-depth look at typography. Currently reading, so I will have a better idea of how I like it when I finish it.
Nov 21, 2012A classic to be read and re-read. If you like this and are interested in the larger scope of graphic design, look for Megg's History of Graphic Design - the granddaddy textbook of graphic design.
Oct 07, 2019The book is worth revisit and its plenty of useful information about typography.
