"Type & typography provides an essential grounding for readers of all levels, from students to professionals. Typography is the mechanical notation and arrangement of language used to make multiple copies, whether by printed or electronic means. This book offers an overview of the bewildering variety of typefaces available, and a practical guide to using type as a meaningful element of design. The carefully structured text, illustrated throughout, takes the reader through every aspect of the subject, from the history of language to the invention of movable type and the evolution of the digital systems of today."--Jacket.
