Explorations in Typography
A brand new edition of Explorations in Typography is now available. It has been revised and expanded to include more typesetting examples and more typefaces as well as a visual index of page layouts and grids. Along with the same excerpt from Erik Spiekermann used in the first edition, this edition also features the writing of Stephen Coles who composed all new typeface descriptions and an index of alternates for each that are low-cost or free for educational use.
The website features a live typography Do it Yourself where you can format different passages of the book. Really well done and a neat way to engage visitors. Memorable.
