(Preface) 'The lack of a specific and comprehensive guide to type design has long been a frustration for typographers, graphic designers and students. Designing Type finally addresses this important need - and brings new depth and insight to the art and process of creating a typeface. Lavishly illustrated with type specimens and diagrams demonstrating visual principles and letter construction, this book discusses structure, optical compensation and legibility, with emphasis on the often overlooked systematic relationship between letters and shapes in a font. A wide range of classic and contempo- rary typefaces are analysed, along with examples of student work and progress sketches. In the light of the rapidly broadening market for original and custom typefaces, Designing Type is a superb reference for both experienced professionals and novice designers.'
