Pozycje opublikowane przez d2d.pl policzyć da się na palcach jednej ręki. Ręka może być niekompletna, nawet mocno, nic nie szkodzi; pełna lista obejmowała bowiem jeszcze do niedawna trzy książki: Człowiek i jego znaki Frutigera, Detal w typografii Hochuliego oraz fenomenalny Elementarz stylu w typografii Bringhursta.

Even though Mitchell and Wightman’s comprehensive manual focuses on book typography, many principles could be applied to any form of typesetting. From leading to spacing to massaging, this book delves into great details with clear visual examples to demonstrate the subtlety of good design. The book itself is a beautiful design with the main text set in Albertina. If you’re designer who cares about readability, Book Typography is a must-have as a reference.

A great guide to typesetting a book, from the starting draft to the finished output. It considers almost every area of designing a book, and provides a great foundational basis for learning all the rules (and what rules to break!). I would definitely recommend to graphic designers!

The only book for those who typeset novels, reference books and other serious books. In-depth and based on years of experience, it has the answers to every design choice. Just note - this is hardcore stuff.

Finally - after five months, I have finished this tome. Not to seem like it was boring at all, this book incorporates a lot of information in the publishing industry covering typography to business. It's a great book to have if you are thinking of publishing a book (freelance or otherwise).
