On Web Typography
Jason Santa Maria’s approachable guide to web typography narrates the thought process behind working with type, from choosing fonts to crafting hierarchies to building grids. Rather than handing down a list of rules and prohibitions, Santa Maria walks side by side with readers through a creative journey. He invites us to think about our own reading experience right now—as we peruse this book—by providing clear and compel- ling examples for visual comparison. We the readers get to judge and evaluate different styles, combinations, and configurations of type, applied to real text that we can picture in the real world.
