1023Re: [PPLetterpress] More reading...
- Nov 3, 2002I have been teaching typography for a few years now and almost
everyone I talk to who teaches says the same thing: ain't no text
available that's worth much.
However, this year I ordered Willi Kunz's TYPOGRAPHY: MACRO + MICRO
AESTHETICS, published by Niggli/Willi Kunz Books, ISBN 3-7212-0348-8.
It is extremely well organized, has a nice balance of theory and
practice, and it is really beautifully presented, a very nice
package, which is important given its price. (I have 'tested' this
book on a few non-type types and the response has usually been
something along the lines of "oh, so that's what you do", which I
have taken to be a good sign.)
Not only a source of much good typographic information but a very
nice lesson in book design.
