Section one covers basic information about type design, while the remaining sections, What Readers Want, Creativity, and Typography Timeline, provide in-depth information about more advanced topics. Chapters include the elements of typography; the differences between type applications; how typography creates identity; what readers look for and respond to; step-by-step guides to developing distinctive type treatments; how to generate type ideas; and the historical development of typographic rules and letter forms.
