In this series of lessons, we'll focus on the fundamentals of typography.
We'll kick things off by breaking down letterforms and learning about their different components. We'll then learn the difference between a typeface, a typestyle and a type family. Next we'll unravel the mystery of how type is measured through points and picas. Then we'll move on and learn about line spacing, letter spacing and word spacing. From there, we'll learn about working with large bodies of type and discuss different methods of alignment. Finally, we'll learn about the process of choosing and using a typeface. Details

Scotch Modern - Victorian Typeface Popular in Books and Magazines
9 Font | OTF | 4 Mb

Recontextualizing the 10-point type of a scientific report published in 1873, Nick Shinn has produced sleekly refined, micro-detailed vector drawings by eye, without the assistance of scans, thus presenting an ironic critique of the way in which mechanical imagery beguiles us with the trite veracity of simulacra. This beautiful genre of type, so popular in books, magazines and advertisements during the Victorian era and much of the 20th century, was derided by advocates of both the Arts & Crafts movement and 20th century modernists, and has never been properly adapted to hot metal, phototype, or digital media -- until now. Now the full range of typographic expression is possible in this style. The OpenType fonts support Western and CE encodings, Cyrillic (with Bulgarian alternates) and Polytonic Greek. There are many special features, including small caps, unicase, italic swash capitals, ten sets of figures per font, and both slashed and nut (vertical) fractions. Together with Figgins Sans, comprises The ModernSuite of matched fonts. Details
Octavia (2004) (digital)

Octavia (2004) (digital)
English | CBR | 58 Pages | 37.05 MB

Take a little Wally Wood, and add a little Frank Frazetta, top it off with a little EC Comics typeface and publish it in black and white like Warren and there you have it: Octavia! The Marquessa Octavia de Sinestra is sentenced for the crimes of witchcraft, black magic, murder and torture against the people of Spain as the story begins, but fans already know that Octavia is much more resilient than that. How will she escape this time? This resurrection of the 70s fantasy vixen—the mad scientist known only as Octavia—is purely a tribute by fantasy artist Mike Hoffman to his love for the character. Clad in a one–piece red leather outfit with dangling skull earrings, Octavia is little more than a Vampirella clone, but Hoffman's Frazetta–like renderings are filled with emotion and classic fantasy allure. The adventures of the mystical maven are filled with monstrous bat–skulls, gorilla–like brutes and a deadly zombie surgeon. What more could a fantasy fan ask for? Details

Improvisational Design: Continuous, Responsive Digital Communication

Suguru Ishizaki, «Improvisational Design: Continuous, Responsive Digital Communication»
MIT Press | ISBN: 026209035X | 2002 | PDF | 184 pages | 2.51 MB

This book proposes a theoretical framework for creating communication design solutions that are as active and dynamic as an improvisational dance performance. In this framework, a design solution, such as a display of on-line news, is considered a performance that consists of a number of active design agents, or performers. Each agent is responsible for presenting a particular element of information, such as a headline or a news story. The individual design agent is sensitive to changes in its context, including the information itself, the goals of the information recipient, and other design agents. The dynamic and continuous design solution as a whole emerges from the activities of collaborating agents. This framework is fundamentally different from the traditional view of communication design, which describes a design solution as a set of fixed attributes. For example, a book design is complete when all the typographic attributes, such as typeface, type size, and leading, are selected and fixed. Once the design is completed, these attributes remain exactly the same throughout the life span of the book. Details
