Book Description

In this book, the reader is taken through the principles outlined in Robert Bringhurst's 'The Elements of Typographic Style' as they apply to visual design on the web. The book goes as far as implementation, complete with the code - in HTML and CSS - demonstrating these principles in a web design context.

This book is on many a designer's bookshelf and is considered to be a classic in the field. Indeed the renowned typographer Hermann Zapf proclaims the book to be a must for everybody in the graphic arts, and especially for our new friends entering the field.

Renowned typographer and poet Robert Bringhurst brings clarity to the art of typography with this masterful style guide. Combining the practical, theoretical, and historical, this edition is completely updated, with a thorough revision and updating of the longest chapter, "Prowling the Specimen Books," and many other small but important updates based on things that are continually changing in the field.
