's review

it was amazing

WOW!, a great local designer mentioned Emil Ruder as his favourite designer/typographer on a small conversation we had. The name remained on my mind and a couple of days later I found information about Ruder on a Design's History website (Design is History - Emil Ruder).

I've understood how type works thanks to some books on the subject, but I've been never been exposed to such a clear and deep discourse on proportions, contrast, typographical shades, colour, rhythm and some more related techniques for setting type. This is a must and an eye-opener for anyone interested on Swiss and modernist Design.

You can buy a copy directly from the publisher (Niggli), or you can try catching one on eBay and save a couple of bucks. Do yourself a favour and BUY THIS BOOK!
