Making Fonts: A Comprehensive Guide to Professional Type-Design


By Chris Campe and Ulrike Rausch

Are you a fan of the book Why Fonts Matter? Ready to graduate and make your own? Simply put, Making Fonts may be the only guide you will ever need for designing fonts.

Afraid to get started? The authors remove the mystique, passing on the basics of type design in just nine steps. Along the way you will learn about the anatomy of letters, tools of the trade and how to develop your ideas from start to finish.

From experimentation with hand-drawn type to layout, digitization, vectorization and the creation of perfect curves, all bases are covered. Making Fonts also includes a helpful selection of workshops (dedicated tutorials) that focus on specific useful approaches.
