How is it that text can be set perfectly and yet look insufferably dull? How do you achieve perfect unity between the type itself and its meaning? In Detail in Typography, Jost Hochuli, master book designer and author of the seminal Designing Books, addresses setting text’s finer points. Hochuli begins with considering how human beings read, moving on incrementally to reviews of letter, word, line, and word-space and line-space. Hochuli concludes by examining whole paragraphs and how they carry meaning. Produced in Switzerland to the highest standards, Detail in Typography embodies critical thinking and articulates design in its physical form.
