Original Book introduction

The present work is a typographic manual developed and designed to operate as a basic encyclopedia where you can store the basic concepts of typography

In this book, we will not focus on advanced typography or very specific aspects. It is intended to function as an additional resource for designers in college or simply to have a cheat sheet to go to from time to time for those who want to apply typography correctly, efficiently and consciously.

This typography manual is made for several purposes, we all know that typography is a very open world, delicate and complex at the same time. Many designers would like to be able to say that they master typography and even those professionals who deal with typography every single day are still learning new applications, new variations, new perspectives, and still studying the basics and their corresponding fundamentals.

In this manual, we will not only study the fundamentals of typography (at least the ones that I consider essential to start with), we will go further. It's fine to learn the basics of typography, but we need someone to explain to us how it works, how it is applied, what it does, and what functionality has. That is, I will not only explain the theory, but we will try to guide the understanding of its practice, in other words, how we can apply it to reality.

  • Typography is for everyone is a project with the intention of being present in schools and universities around the world to bring typography to all designers. This is only the free version of the e-book. This book already exists in a physical version.

What does the Free version include?

  • In my opinion, the free versions of any book are useful to get a realistic idea of what the book will contain. That is why I have decided to take 30% of what the book will contain in its entirety. The most important thing is that the free version already brings a unique value.

Are there any discounts for students?

  • If I have written this book it is because I have been a graphic design student at the University of Design in Barcelona. And I know how hard it is to make money as a student.

    This is not really a book, it is a manual that will help you to get through the course in the easiest way possible. To make it easier for you, I'm going to give a 30% (59,99€ 41,99€) discount to those students from school, high school, universities and even to any student who is part of a course/materclass/bootcamp related to design (both for those who attend in person and online).

    To get the discount, you just need to be able to prove your student status.

When will the final book be published?

  • It is still too early to talk about a specific date. For the online version, the 1st of September. For the physical version we will wait a bit until we have been able to discuss the printing conditions sufficiently with the supplier.
