I Wrote a Book

Posted on Oct 5, 2014 in Typography


The fine folks at RotoVision approached me about the project a while back, the idea being that it’d be great to have a book for aspiring font designers who wanted an introduction to the commercial typographic world. I address the basics of typography, font design, font creation with FontLab (including the basics through advanced topics such as OpenType features), and I address some of the nitty gritty of the commercial world of font creation as well. The book is also available as a UK edition, called Digital Type.
