In Theory of Type Design the internationally renowned typographer and type designer Gerard Unger presents for the first time a complete and accessible theory of font design.
The manual consists of 24 concise chapters, each clearly describing a different aspect of type design, from the influence of language to the digital developments of today and the way in which the eye and the brain process the shape of the letters in order to be able to understand their expressiveness.

In this lavishly illustrated book more than 200 images and practical examples are shown to clarify the subject material. The book also contains an extensive glossary in which the terminology used is explained succinctly.

The theory is internationally oriented and relevant to typographical courses, professional typographers and people interested in text and reading all over the world.
