[BKARTS] Book Typography


PLEASE RESPOND TO  <mailto:orders@xxxxxxxxxxxx> orders@xxxxxxxxxxxx

Book Typography has just arrived at Oak Knoll!

"An internationally known book designer, not only discusses well designed
typography, but why it's important."

This book was written by well know graphic artist and figurative painter,
Ari Rafaeli. It examines the essential factors of a well designed book -
attractive and suitable type, close spacing of words, reader-friendly format
- and considers how maximum-quality typography (of books or of any text
intended for continuous reading), consonant with traditional standards, can
be achieved by users of present-day technology. Word-division, letter-space,
punctuation, different styles of footnotes and endnotes, use of symbols and
special characters, the niceties of dashes, treatment of quoted passages,
folios and running heads, are studied with reference to renowned
authorities, including the Cambridge and Oxford styles. The famous Monotype
and Linotype book faces are surveyed in their historical contexts with
remarks on the qualities of the current digital versions of them. This is a
must-read for any typophile or student of type and typography. Illustrated.
Co-published with The British Library.

2005, Hardcover, 8.5 x 11 inches, 160 pages

ISBN 1584561572, Order No. 079445-A11, Price: $ 34.95
