This manual introduces the fundamentals of type use and the graphic language of typography. The Complete Typographer provides very practical and contextual information on working with type: including the terminology of type and type setting, the historical evolution of both typography and type design, the rules and conventions of professional practice, and key decisions on type selection and layout.
This new edition’s revised structure is designed to enhance the connections between practical and theoretical knowledge and to relate key contemporary typefaces more explicitly to the development of type design and print history. Review knowledge of the subject through a series of notes.
Will Hill is Senior Lecturer in Graphic Design at Cambridge School of Art, Anglia Ruskin University. He is a member of Association Typographique Internationale and has written a number of papers on typography for international design and communication journals.
