Summary: Quality introduction to typography and layout. Easy to follow with plenty of good examples. (5/5)
Although I’ve had no official design training I’m always fascinated by design in general and in awe of people who make good design look easy (like these guys). So in the constant attempt to improve my design quality I was recommended this book as a good intro/workbook and was not disappointed. The structure of the book is well laid out and easy to follow, with plenty of good design examples and, surprisingly enough, it was well laid out as well. And although it’s a typography workbook Samara includes plenty of information on basic layout, grids and the like – lovely. Go get it if you need an intro to the world of type and layout.
