www.type (Design Directories)

by RogerPring (Author)


In contrast to a standard technical manual, the focus of this book is on the design issues surrounding its use; how it looks and its functional appropriateness. The opening section explores the type possibilities of va rious websites with differing functions, from personal through business sites, including those that have multiple functions. The showcase of 300 top type sites in the latter half of the book allows readers to examine type in a better context, to judge its style and purpose and to gain ideas for their own use on the Web - as well as a section on blunders that make one aware of the importance of this essential but often-overlooked component.
