This lovely, well-written book is concerned foremost with creating typography and is essential for professionals who regularly work for clients.

Author writes about designing with the correct typeface; striving for rhythm, proportion, and harmony; choosing and combining type; designing pages; using section heads, subheads, footnotes, and tables; applying kerning and other type adjustments to improve legibility; and adding special characters, including punctuation and diacritical marks.

The Elements of Typographic Style teaches the history of and the artistic and practical perspectives on a variety of type families that are available in Europe and America today.

A few hundred years of type and typography have established rules that only a fool would ignore.

Good typog­raphy is measured by how well it reinforces the meaning of the text, not by some ab­stract scale of merit.
