The Philosophy of Typography by Steven Acres

Typography is apart of every designers life. We use type in artwork, websites, write ups, articles, basically simple speech. Steven Acres took it a step further and brought out a little book called, “The Philosophy of Typography.” In this article I will showcase the books design and layout that Steven Acres designed. Check it out.

The Philosophy of Typography

A sixty-page book covering the philosophical & semiotic aspects of typography, with content based on lectures by a SCAD professor & Robert Bringhurst’s “The Elements of Typographic Style.”

      You haven’t read it, so I doubt you’d know if it was cliché.

      Also, I work on a PC that I built. :)

    Not saying this is a good or bad, but I was misled by the title of this and am disappointed as a result :(

    Did you find the book helpful? I have had a few typography books I have looked through, but have not been overly impressed with any of them yet.
