Typography and Hand Lettering Books Good type is the foundation for nearly every form of design. Here are some great typography The spine is the vertical edge of a book as it normally stands on a bookshelf. Early books did not have titles on their spines; rather they were shelved flat with their spines inward and titles written with ink along their fore edges. Modern books display their titles on their spines. User experience design is, at root, about understanding your users. And so this book gives a useful and comprehensive introduction to foundational psychology, in a way that directly relates to UX design. Written by David Evans, an experimental psychology PhD and senior manager of consumer research at Microsoft, this will help UX designers gain an edge in a super-competitive field. 15. Graphic Design: The New Basics by Ellen Lupton & Jennifer Cole Phillips Great book design is only as good as its typography. In very basic terms, it makes sense that fonts should be unobtrusive, in as much as the reader doesn’t ‘notice’ the font, simply the words. It’s often said that monospaced typewriter fonts such as Courier are to be avoided in body copy, as the uniform spacing gives too much standout to individual letters. Of course, no conversation about book design is complete without mentioning the printed word itself. Having long since evolved beyond working with mechanical printing presses, the art of type has now entered a glorious, digitally-enhanced golden age. In these articles, meet the people who have dedicated their careers to making letters beautiful and learn the ABCs of typography.

Legibly state the title and the author’s name (you’d be surprised by how many covers fall at this hurdle); Readers can expect to find several different conversations in the book, from how branding can “reinvent traditions”, to how retail designers can combine traditional retail experiences with sustainability and digitalisation. Accompanying this is an extensive collection of prints and photographs. A phrase, quotation, or poem. The epigraph may serve as a preface, as a summary, as a counter-example, or to link the work to a wider literary canon, either to invite comparison, or to enlist a conventional context.

Drawing Type: An Introduction to Illustrating Letterforms by Alex Fowkes Mauracher agrees, and advocates the importance of looking outside of the obvious touchpoints for ideas: “Of course I get inspired by other books, but they’re mostly not about book design. I read a lot and I think that’s important, to see what works and what doesn’t.” Good by Design by Viction:workshop ltd. Image courtesy of Counterprint 21. Designing Type by Karen Cheng

Yolanda Andrés (@yolandandres) grew up in a town surrounded by friends and family with the women in her life. But she hung up the thimble to dedicate herself to graphic design and advertising until in 2008, when her daughter was born prematurely, she began to accompany the long hours in the hospital with the thread and needle. So what she started as a way to abstract herself, stop counting hours and relax became her job. Now she is an artistic embroiderer who has worked for large brands and institutions such as Hermès, Museo Thyssen or Carolina Herrera.Sara De Bondt’s design for a book about sculptor Franz Erhard Walther, which accentuates the possibilities of tactility Swedish designer Marcus Gärde has created an online grid calculation tutorial for figuring out the basics in any book design project. It’s based on a ratio method that works with all paper formats, and “always results in both horizontal and vertical lines fitting perfectly within the area,” according to Anfalov. Mauracher takes a strongly typographic approach to his designs for books, mainly in the cultural field, and advises that type-wise, “less is more.” He explains: “It’s all about readability – that’s what most books are for, to be read – and the mood I want to create or feelings I want to evoke when reading or looking at it.
