Author Robert Bringhurst 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. The last section of the book classifies and displays many type families, offers a glossary of typography terms, and lists type designers and type foundries. The book briefly mentions digital typography, but otherwise ignores it, focusing instead on general typography and page- and type-design issues. Its examples include text in a variety of languages--including English, Russian, German, and Greek--which is particularly helpful if your work has a multinational focus.
