I couldn't put it down, which goes to show I am a huge nerd. Seriously, though, I learned a ton of interesting and useful information related to bookmaking. I think everyone who works in the publishing industry could benefit from reading through it.
Though I'd been given an old edition (2003), this was very helpful to learn general typographic guidelines! My InDesign documents will be better now than ever. I plan to check out the latest edition, since software and tech (especially screen resolution) have updated so much.
Книга отличная, но не хватало визуальных примеров для тех, кто только знакомится с типографикой.
I go back to this again and again in my work.
The book on typography in our time. If you typeset books this is your ultimate tool. Felici goes into every detail right down to the spacing in between the letters. Filled with examples written in easy and entertaining manner. Let the master, James Felici, be your guide.
A must have for self-publishers to understand typography.
A great read, engagingly written, with plenty of usable insights and typographical eye candy.
a pretty good read to learn the basics of typography so you don't make ugly things. And for the record... everyone needs to stop using comic sans. NOW.
See this article from Slate: "Space Invaders: Why you should never, ever use two spaces after a period" (http://www.slate.com/id/2281146/pagen...).
haven't actually finished it. but it wows me everytime i open it.
This book serves its title perfectly: this is the complete guide. Everything is in there, with beautiful examples of all the nitty gritty typography conundrums.
