is an up-to-date reference book on the craft of typography. It organizes a dictionary and a style guide into a single, one-stop resource.
Prepared by a team of leading professionals-a designer, an editor, compositors, and production managers-this glossary will be valuable to anyone who works in publishing or printing for its definitions of typographical terms and concise treatment of typographical style.
The glossary adds important details to discussions of typography that are covered more generally in editorial style guides such as The Chicago Manual of Style. It is indispensable to anyone who prepares text for a living, including those who implement their own typesetting decisions with the aid of word-processing and page-layout software.
