Thinking with Type

I just finished reading this book and I think every designer should read it as well. I definitely feel more educated about typography and it’s history after reading it. Covers the basic rules of typography and also has a great section about using grids. One thing that I did find odd for a book about typography were the “widows” I found in certain paragraphs. Nothing bugs me more than a damn widow!

    Ooo this is a good book! It was one of my text books for my typography class. I’m also going to pick up Grid Systems in Graphic Design which you’ve mentioned before. Can’t wait to read it.
