The Elements of Typographic Style

Web design is not all about technology. It's not all about pretty graphics either. Typography, though currently quite limited on the web, is an important part of any successful design. This book is an excellent resource, providing historical facts and examples of typefaces, along with guidelines on getting those little typographical details right as well as a thorough guide to page layout. This book won't increase the number of typefaces you can use when designing for the web, but it will help you get the most out of those that are available. A must have for anyone interested in typography.

To learn how the knowledge in this book can be used on the Web, visit Richard Rutters ongoing (and excellent) project The Elements of Typographic Style Applied to the Web.
