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.”
