Abstract

Basics Typography 02: Using Type is a wide ranging and practical guide to typography.

The book starts with an exploration of how to define type, where it is found and its many different uses. It goes on to examine layout and practice within a graphic design context, teaching designers how to work with type through specific projects and student exercises.

Highly illustrated, this title contains images of historically important work alongside many examples from contemporary design studios. A helpful running glossary and examples of successful student and professional work make this an essential handbook for students of graphic design and visual communication.
