On Web Typography
Web typography has always been something i felt i need to learn much more about and i would list it as one of my weaknesses – Not good considering that typography is pretty much the most important element in web design. This is why I am especially pleased that my favorite publishers in the web industry are publishing a new book by Jason Santa Maria all about Web typography.
Achieving a thorough grasp of typography can take a lifetime, but moving beyond the basics is within your reach right now. In this book, we’ll learn how to look at typefaces with a discerning eye, different approaches to typographic planning, how typography impacts the act of reading, and how to choose and combine appropriate typefaces from an aesthetic and technical point of view. Through an understanding of our design tools and how they relate to the web as a medium, we can empower ourselves to use type in meaningful and powerful ways.
