This book is about everything that happens while you’re reading, and about what type designers, typographers and graphic designers bring to a page to make reading happen. Renowned type designer Gerard Unger distills decades of design experience into a playful, accessible text that reflects the range of his professional projects, from USA Today fonts to the look of the highway and metro signs in the Netherlands. Here, Unger explores topics such as legibility, invisible typography, the ergonomics of letterforms, the universe of signs, negative space and typographic illusions.
