The right typeface communicates the visual essence of content while enhancing the impact of the overall design. The many type samplers available are often more confusing than helpful. Typeface: Classic Typography for Contemporary Design is a unique sourcebook featuring sixty classic typefaces that continue to resonate. Organised using typographic classifications such as sans serif, serif, display, script, and dingbats, each typeface is presented in detail, including its origin, main characteristics, and uses. The main character set of each type specimen is accompanied by typesheet style examples including technical specifications and non-Latin characters.
