TYPOGRAPHY
FOR WEB DESIGNERS

Script is one of the oldest cultural assets. The first attempts at written expressions date back more than 5,000 years ago. From the Sumerians cuneiform writing to the invention of the Gutenberg printing press in Medieval Germany up to today՚s modern desktop publishing it՚s been a long way that has left its impact on the current use and practice of typography.

Even though we neither cut nor set metal types any longer we still use terms like uppercase and lowercase letters referring to drawers in which types were kept or – in German – use expressions like Schriftschnitt (English = typeface) which refers to the cutting of individual types. On the other hand, most of the people who deal with typography in their daily lives, whether they are graphic or web designers have no special training for this independent craft.

Consider Buying Official Copy.
