This unparalleled handbook explores the formal structures and acceptable variations of type as fundamental disseminators of information.

"What is Typography?" breaks down the anatomy of typography to explore tools and processes, methods of organizing the mechanics of type, and the various means of arranging and displaying type. It also looks at how different media, and consequent reproduction processes, underpin every aspect of typographic design.
Beyond academic analysis of the subject, "What is Typography?" celebrates work from the vanguard of typographic design, showcasing an impressive, eclectic portfolio from the world's foremost practitioners. This book is a key resource for both entry-level and student designers as well as professionals in the field.'
