About: (Foreword to the Seventh Edition) "The 'design textbook', which is how Emil Ruder characterized his book Typography, was first published in 1967, nearly 35 years ago. Since then, several editions have been re-printed and translated into various foreign languages. Today the "Ruder" is a standard work in the field of typography that has served entire generations of typesetters, typographers and designers as a foundation for their work. "Today the book has become a common utensil and has thus moved from the bookstore through the department store to the kiosk, [...I. Thus, Typography actually would seem to have found its purpose as the means to the end of mass communication." This sentence, which Ruder wrote in the 1967 introduction to his book, has proven particularly true today, in an age when our entire environment is registered through media. The book made a not insignificant contribution in this regard as well. Since Ruder died three years after his book was published, he was not able to experience its worldwide success."
