Typography is the foundation of all graphic design. And if there’s one sure way to improve as a graphic designer, it’s to become more confident and more sophisticated in your use of type. This fully updated fourth edition is a comprehensive guide to creating professional type with Adobe InDesign. It covers micro and macro typography concepts, from understanding the nuance of a single spacing width to efficiently creating long and complex documents. InDesign Type shows not just how to use InDesign’s extensive type features, but why certain approaches are preferable to others, and how to avoid common mistakes. Whether you’re creating a single-page flyer or a thousand-page catalog, whether your documents will be printed or viewed on screen, InDesign Type is an invaluable resource for getting the most out of InDesign’s typographic toolset.
InDesign Type provides:
• An exclusive focus on the typographic capabilities of InDesign
• Complete coverage of macro and micro typography in InDesign
• Clear, engaging explanations of the why and the how of good typography
The 4th edition expands upon the existing content in three ways:
1. An extensive discussion of the challenges and conventions of screen typography. InDesign Type has its roots in print typography and, while screen typography was mentioned in the previous edition, it was more as a sidebar than on an equal pegging. The new edition, would aim to put screen typography on an almost-equal level to print typography. There would be a discussion of setting type for ePubs, fixed layout ePubs, as well as screen presentations and using InDesign’s Publish Online feature (new since the last edition).
2. Adding and revising content in light of the changes introduced in the most recent updates to InDesign—especially Typekit (barely mentioned in the third edition because it had only just launched), Contextual Type controls, and expanded OpenType support.
3. Going deeper on existing content as the product and the author's approach have evolved over the years.
