Butterick’s Practical Typography, a new online book
A new typography resource, beautifully done
Graphics.com gave a link today to an online book, Butterick’s Practical Typography [shareware, to use an old term] which looks to have some excellent pieces.
I just read the first article: Drowning the Crystal Goblet. It is quite good. In it, the concept of invisible typography is taken apart. As I have taught that for years, it was good for me to hear the counter arguments.
The second article: Typography in ten minutes is accurately and solidly presented. I expect to do a lot of reading in it over the next few days and weeks.
I think you’ll find it useful.
