    Short and sweet this Perhaps a little too short at least for a tyro like me The prose is clear the illustrations adeuate but in some ways the presentation was a little crippled by the eBook format as I would have liked to be able to see detail in some of the images It would also have been good to see examples of 'good' and 'bad' typesetting and suggestions as to why they might or might not workAs it stands however the book contains a good number of useful and interesting links to various sites and the brevity of the piece is in some ways a good thing as it forces one to go back over the text and work again at the places where it feels at first to be lackingtl;dr uick and handy but wanted

    A great little pocket guideDon't expect to finish reading this and immediately know how to combine typefaces it merely serves as a brief guide and people new to typography might even be left a little overwhelmed However Tim references plenty of great external resources to help you expand on the various methods coveredDefinitely worth checking out if you're remotely interested in typography I personally never really bother to combine different type but after this uick little read I'll be reconsidering that the next time I design something

    Another great book from the pocket guide series I think they just keep getting better As with many other books in this series this one gets you oriented to the topic gives you a little theory a little practical knowledge and then points you in the right direction for further study I'm excited to get started pairing some typefaces Highly recommended

    The book delivers it's promise A pocket guide to combining typefaces It just scratches the surface of type combination but that's what pocket guides are supposed to doIf you have a spare hour at the train or on a plane get this book You'll have a starting point on how to combine typefaces for your next project

  8. Pam Pam says:

    I was hoping for from this Chapter 4 the part on actually combining typefaces really could have used some additional explanation and examples Some of the images seemed weirdly cropped or too low res I'm not sure if that's just the Kindle version the ipad kindle app or what

  9. Davor Davor says:

    Nice handbook which I plan to consult whenever I'll have a hard time deciding on typfaces for a project at hand
