Description

With this visually stunning primer, designers will develop the skills and vision to produce truly innovative, eye-catching type design. All the basics of type design are covered, and in-depth information is provided on more advanced topics such as the differences between type applications, how typography creates identity, and what best inspires readers. Chapters cover:

The language of type
Space and type
Typographic unity
What makes readers respond
Type and identity
Evolving type treatments
Readability and legibility
A timeline of the evolution of writing and typography

Designer Alex W. White packs the pages with fifteen hundred images--modern and ancient, specially created and found--that illustrate typographic concepts and continue to yield more complexity and connectivity with each viewing. Listening to Type proves that type is much more than groups of letterforms on a page; it is a language with the ability to convey meaning and evoke emotions beyond the spoken words it symbolizes.
