The Designer’s Dictionary of Type provides a vivid and highly accessible look at an important graphic design ingredient: typography. From classic fonts like Garamond and Helvetica, to modern-day digital fonts like OCR-A and Keedy Sans, author and designer Sean Adams demystifies 48 major typefaces, describing their history, stylistic traits, and common application. Adams provides eye-catching illustrated examples, this time showcasing the beauty and expressiveness of typography, as employed by the world’s greatest designers.

Organised by serif, sans-serif, script, display, and digital typefaces, this book is a vital guide for designers, teachers, or students looking to gain a foundational understanding of the art, practice, and history of typography.
