Awesome Resource: Thinking With Type

Posted on: August 3rd, 2012 by Hannah Beasley 4 Comments

Every moment is a moment of learning, each day we gain more knowledge. Learning never ends ā€“ it continues on, and is something we should chase after every day. I want to know more, to have my art to go deeper, to resonate more with others, to become more beautiful. Iā€™m working more on gaining knowledge through reading and seeing, hearing and doing. One book that has helped in that venture is Thinking With Type by Ellen Lupton.

This book is amazing ā€“ from the eye-catching graphics to the wide range of fonts to the valuable information presented within the well-formatted pages. It begins with a wonderful summary of the history of type, analyzing how typography has changed and evolved throughout the years. Fonts from all throughout history are shown in the pages, visually showing those changes and providing each section with a beautiful array of typography. It then moves on to the anatomy of letters, and teaches the basics of analyzing characters. Typographic theory takes over the rest of the book, and valuable information about the development of fonts and how to use them is presented. I thoroughly enjoyed this text, will definitely keep it close as a great resource, and would recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about typography!
