Summary

Some things never change: the anatomy of type, type classification, the principles of layout and legibility of the printed page. Other aspects of typography have been revolutionized by the computer and the rise of desktop publishing. This handy guide provides a rundown of the history of type, traditional usage, and the changes wrought by the widespread practice of typesetting by nonprofessionals.
