I am in the process of transforming myself into a book. In order to do that, I am having my spine surgically removed and removed and replaced with a smyth sewn binding. My skin is being stripped off in large patches and replaced with 12 pt cardstock with a four color cover and scuffless matte film lamination. I have hired a designer to come up with a treatment for my textual body. I can't take it anymore. Someone please take me off of the shelf and put me in your lap. I know it doesn't really ma...more

Yes, I seriously read a typographic style manual, but believe me, it was worth it. Not only is this a detailed, informative, and surpassingly witty survey of typography, but it's simply a beautiful book to hold and to read. It's a bit like taking an introductory lesson from a friendly architecture professor, learning about intricacies and critical minutia you had never before considered, and slowly realizing your teacher designed the room, the building, perhaps even the chair you're sitting in,...more
This book convinced me that there is a lot of art in typography. It convinced me that good typography can make a big difference in how good text looks in a page. And it definitely convinced me that Robert Bringhurst is a stellar typographer. But it hasn't convinced me that he can convey this knowledge effectively.
Bringhurst has deep knowledge of typography, and the historical chapter on typefaces alone makes it worth your read. However, in many instances he falls into the trap of confusing trad

What a beautiful book! It almost doesn't matter what this book was about, because it was so thoughtfully laid out and lovely to read, which is in itself a testament to great typography. But the content was equally good. I learned so much about type, from the mundane technical details to the influence of language and politics. Bringhurst's little jokes and anecdotes are the cherry on top.
Anyone who is interested in type, words, history, design, art, and all that is good in the world should read t

Sure, it's simply the best book on print typography out there. That's nice, I suppose, but the content of this book pales in comparison to its form. It's a book on book design that serves as its own case study in effective design. There's not a thing about this book as a book I don't love—the design incorporates so many little touches (marginal notes, a lay-flat spine on a paperback, proper paragraph layout, dead-on perfect justification) that it's a joy just to look at it.
Which is good, because

This review appeared at a blog. Here.
There's a certain incongruity in writing about The Elements of Typographic Style, a book about how to design books, using my Alphasmart Neo, which gives me five narrow rows of heavily pixelated characters. Except this is not true; it is in fact completely in keeping, because one of Bringhurst's messages is, I think, learn about your tools (where a tool might be a typeface or a page design, as well as a piece of software), use the right ones for the job, and

Вау!
Це, звісно, не для світського ознайомлення праця, але якщо б Вас часом, леді і джентельмени, зацікавила історія шрифтів, їх створення, їх змісту та власне, ким бачать себе (натхненні, відданні і свідомі типографи), то це ідеальне поєдання цих аспектів. Автор дуже тонко подає типографію, стиль шрифту у роботі, через аналогічні змістовно сенси у музиці, до того ж скурпульозно розкриває найтонші грані філософії функціонування усього різноманіття шрифтів.

La domanda sembra strana ma... come facciamo a leggere? A districarci in merito al senso del testo, ai dialoghi, alle convenzioni scientifiche, alle lingue straniere (con caratteri non latini), a non soccombere cioè allo stream of consciousness degli autori? Grazie ai tipografi e agli stampatori!
Bellissimo studio, tecnico e affascinante, di Mr Bringhurst che è, tra le altre cose, un tipografo di grande esperienza e perizia.
Jul 31, 2018Daniel Riesco rated it it was amazing · review of another edition
Five stars, if not out of enjoyment, than for sheer quality. I find it difficult to imagine a text of typography more brimming in style and grace than this one. The font guide at the very end is gorgeous and invaluable.
This one's for anyone with even a bit of interest in the matter. At times accessible or inaccessible, what more could you ask for?

Aside from some mystical mumbo jumbo about the pseudoscience of golden ratios in page layout, this is a brilliant, succinct, and comprehensive guide to typographical best practices. Skip Chapter 8 and this guide will serve you well.

I didn’t finish this because it was far more technical and went deeper into the art of type than I feel I will ever need. Almost a textbook for a professional.
However, everything I did read and understand, I loved. The precision and richness of information that goes into setting text on a surface is breathtaking. Glad I know a bit more about it now.
5 stars are not enough...

Within a short time after completing my formal education and entering my profession, I became rather painfully aware that my training in the art and craft of typography had been sorely lacking in many respects. There is an incredibly rich history and a fascinating set of accepted principles and rules which govern typography, the skillful use of letterforms and typeset matter which is a very important sub-discipline of graphic design. These were practically occult to me early in my career. I had...more

As the title clearly indicates, Bringhurst sets out to do for Typography what Strunk and White’s Elements of Style did for writing: condense the vast array of typographic rules into one thorough reference manual. Of course, the role of typography has vastly expanded over the past century, and the typographic rules for billboards are entirely different from those for websites. Wisely, Bringhurst restricts himself primarily to one form: the book.
Within that field, the Elements does a wonderful job

The Elements of Typographic Style is pretty much the bible for its field. I read it some time ago (it was first published in 1992) and decided to revisit it recently. Bringhurst writes with clarity, passion and humour. He loves the printed word and celebrates when it is presented with grace and beauty. So do I. The printing museums in Antwerp and Lyon have both enthralled me.
Bringhurst's aim for typographers is to 'induce a state of energetic repose which is the ideal condition for reading.' He

Part Tufte design book, part Chicago Manual of Style, part encyclopedia of fonts. Wonderful book for anyone interested in design.
The book can be read in one of two ways:
1) This book is pretentious! When the author describes a poor choice of margins as abuse of your publication's readers, he is clearly exaggerating the importance of his field.
2) Typography is an old field that, unlike modern UX, which continues to abuse software users with poor application design, has already figured out the rule

An incredibly comprehensive journey through the art and science of typography. Written with a poetic edge, the book is a romantic embrace of the world of type. The text often borders on grandiloquence, sometimes resulting in a loss of clarity, but the practical applications, and the author's overriding passion for the subject, justify this book's reputation as a classic of the field.
The best book on typography and print design I've ever read!

A testament to the very craft that it talks about. Makes you appreciate what goes into making a book so much and proves that every craft can be art.

Excellent. Deservedly the classic work on typography. The whole is beautifully presented, in terms of book construction and typesetting, but also in terms of literary style - Bringhurst is both a typographer and a poet.
The pages are a joy, not just for their information but also as examples of various design and typographic elements in action. There are some lovely touches - amongst its various attributes, the book is also a design specimen.
Needfully, there is a lot a of technical stuff. Maths i

As a typography focused designer with a couple of decades of experience, I've taken a few courses in Typography, and I've skimmed a small mountain of attractive, yet essentially worthless 'design' books. The problem with books that are meant to educate about design is partially in the way subjective and objective factors are approached. Typography is helpful though, as certain aspects are more concrete than one might think, and this is where Bringhurst shines.

Best typography book I have read so far. Heaps of tips and tricks, and valuable information about typography and design history. But because it’s a typography book, that’s not a surprise, it supposed to be informative and well designed. What surprised me most was the writing style. Robert Bringhurst basically tickles your brain, shows you how horribly wrong was what you did last week for a design project in a sentence, give you a decent amount of humour without loosing the content.

This was the first text I ever read with regards to typography. Although some concepts still muddle my head (I'm mildly asleep during my morning commute), I found it was thoroughly informational, it and has given me a new appreciation to typography (and [book] design/publishing).
A curious thing, however, in my opinion, is that Bringhurst mentioned that having some white, blank pages at the end of the book was a good thing, and yet there wasn't a single one in his! His book looked so visually de

Una de las biblias de la tipografía y la composición de publicaciones.
No solo habla de fuentes y tipografías sino también es estética desde el punto de vista de la edición. Es decir, no solo desarrolla conceptos puramente del diseño gráfico y editorial sino también cuestiones que afectan a la edición de textos.
Es un libro de consulta constante, al menos para mí, junto a 'Diseño para la edición'.
Tengo la versión 4.0 en castellano, publicado por el Fondo de Cultura Económica en 2014.

Great book for those interested in publishing and typography, which conciliates technical information, historical facts and a wonderful text. It's almost literature – good one. It's not a manual, it's a book concerned with understanding typography as an expressive and eloquent tool that gives life for any text. Really worth reading!
This book... This book is not surprising the 'typographer's bible'. Yes, perhaps this is a big statement but it is a very very concise and yet descriptive manual to typography for everybody interested in the craft.
I am glad I didn't read it too early. Taking your time with it seems like a better idea. I want to purchase it for myself so I have a copy to refer to in the future.
