Quatrième de couverture

Frederic Goudy, American type designer, once said, "Anyone who would letterspace lower case would steal sheep." To most people, this comment only adds to the perception that type inhabits a mysterious world with intricate terminology and elaborate rules; added to this are thouasands of type faces out there that all seem to look alike. Until now, Spiekerman and Ginger shepherd their decades of typograhpic experience into a unique and lively guidebook which shows that type is easy to use, easy to understand, and in the hands of a savvy user, a powerful communications tool. You need no previous knowledge of typography to enjoy Stop Stealing Sheep. It makes no difference what kind of computer you work on, what type of software you use, or what you do for a living, because as the authors show- type, good type -reaches across all boundaries, computer platforms, and professional distinctions.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 WAY too basic 10 juillet 2000
Par Matt McDowall - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Spiekermann and Ginger have, essentially, nothing to say. Unfortunately, they spend over 150 pages saying it. The worst of it is that there are all kinds of color photos, headings, etc., so the book is printed on heavy, glossy paper. This is bad because (a) glossy paper is hard to read text on (as ANY designer should know) and (b) both heavy/glossy paper and color inks are expensive. Thus, you must pay $20 for a book that could very easily be condensed into a $1.50 pamphlet. The book is often touted as an introduction into type because it is basic and easy to access. The problem is that it is TOO basic. If you know what a serif is, this book is too basic for you. If you know that it is possible to adjust the spacing between letters, words, or lines of type, then this book is WAY too basic for you--even if you aren't familiar with terms like letterspacing and leading. Get a book that will be a real introduction--if you're going to learn about type, learn enough that it will make a difference. If you want easy access, pick up something by Robin Williams (doesn't matter what--they're all about the same). If you really want to learn something, get Robert Bringhurst's The Elements of Typographic Style. Whatever you do, pass this book up. You could learn more, cheaper, from a high-school yearbook instructor.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 simple, lovely 28 avril 2000
Par Sarah Harden - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
As other reviewers have suggested, the book is a simple, introductory glance at graphic design. It is, presumably, written for those who have never considered the impact of font selection and page layout on the reader, viewer, etc. Still, it makes a nice companion text for more serious graphic designers, as well as a welcome first-read for individuals who encounter or produce graphic materials on a daily basis, but who have little formal training in the discipline.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A good clean introduction to type 17 novembre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
As a graphic art professor, I use this book as an introduction to type for those who have never considered the subject before. It is popular with students for ease of reading and understanding. A must for anyone starting a serious study of type.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good for an overview 10 mars 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
It was a good, entertaining read, if a bit light on actual content. Useful if you have no idea what type to pick, but if you've ever thrown something together by the seat of your pants and had someone comment favorably on it, you probably don't need this. Some people are born with an innate design sense -- this is for those who weren't.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Quick Read for Newbies 10 juin 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Today, web information is mostly text. Case in point, you are reading this. Trouble is text on most sites is not appealing. To increase the text appeal of my sites I turned to this book.
The book is a good introduction to typography and a very fast read, under 3 hours. Good for beginners; however, it left me wanting more. It was more like a 10pm news trailer -- woman found walking city streets with nothing on but a hockey mask. I was expecting a book to explain what specific font conveys. Instead the book provides example situations and suggested fonts.
I give it four-stars, and try to find the next book on the subject.
