ackages on store shelves, posters on building walls, pages of a website—all contain information that needs to be communicated. At the heart of that communication is type: visually interesting, interactive, expressive and captivating. Each letter must come alive; therefore, each letter must be carefully crafted or chosen. A solid foundation in typography, as well as an understanding of its nuances, will help you optimize your visual communication—in whatever form it takes.

By breaking down the study of type into a systematic progression of relationships—letter, word, sentence, paragraph, page and screen—award-winning graphic designer and professor of communication design Denise Bosler provides a unique and illuminating perspective on typography for both print and digital media and for designers of all skill levels.

Through instruction, interviews and real-world inspiration, Mastering Type explores the power of each typographic element—both as it stands alone and as it works with other elements—to create successful design, to strengthen your skill set and to inspire your next project.

This book takes in all aspects of type from across the ages and around the globe that form the important fundamentals of the discipline.

“I purchased this book for one of my college courses. This book is easy to follow along, has a great layout of material, and plenty of useful examples. I referred to this book often throughout my college days, and I would recommend this to other college students, as well as those who would like to study type on their own!”
