Explorations in Typography
By Carolina de Bartolo with Erik Spiekermann, and Stephen Coles
This new edition of Explorations in Typography is a vast collection of typesetting examples for students and professional designers alike. An article by Erik Spiekermann from his classic text Stop Stealing Sheep and Find Out How Type Works has been set in hundreds of ways in hundreds of typefaces, creating an extended visual taxonomy of typesetting that encourages readers to learn by looking. Techniques for indicating paragraphs and hierarchy are demonstrated, from the most basic to the unusual or situation-specific.
Typeface descriptions and an index of alternate typefaces that are low-cost or free for educational use are included, along with a visual index of pages layouts and grids that is new to the second edition.
Explorations in Typography is a valuable and extensive resource of typesetting ideas, ideal for anyone who works with typography.
