Best Way to Learn Typography: The Elements of Typographic Style

The Elements of Typographic StyleWant to learn typography? The best book on the subject is “The Elements of Typographic Style” by Robert Bringhurst. This book is a masterpiece when it comes to the subject of typography and page design.

Very often I come across people online who ask where they can learn about typography, and I see experienced designers being very mysterious about it, as if they’re hoarding and carefully guarding their knowledge. Either that, or they’ll point you to all kinds of bullshit resources that teach you bits and pieces or very little that’s actually useful.

Well fuck you all. This book is the best place to start. Read it, if you know what’s good for you.
