Type Matters. We couldn’t agree more, and really like the look of this book by Jim Williams for Merrell Publishers. Based on a series of handout sheets for students that the former designer and typographer-turned lecturer produced whilst working at Staffordshire University, Type Matters is an excellent primer in the art and practice of typography for anyone interested in developing or honing their skills. Simply and beautifully laid out and focusing on illustrative examples throughout, the book has the feel of a vintage reference book, complete with a natty black faux leather cover.
We think it should appeal to all but the most experienced or snobby design-heads, and will be the first to admit to wanting a copy!
