Discipline: Communication

With this artfully designed “Initiation in Typography” the authors introduce the reader to the world of visual design and typography, arouse curiosity through an elaborate aesthetics, and disclose the magic of typography page after page. The first chapter deals with the question of proportions, chapter two is concerned with the tension between black and white and in chapter three typographic details are discussed: the origin of character forms, type families and historical typefaces. Through the use of slightly transparent paper, the effect of particular grid systems becomes obvious.
