''Did you notice how picturesque the letter 'Y' is?'' asks a poem by Victor Hugo. ''That the letter 'O' stands for the sun or that the letter 'Y' stands for tree, glass or a fork in the road?'' In this fascinating initiation into visual design and typography, the authors awaken readers' curiosity page by page as they reveal the magic of typography. Short, succinct texts introduce each topic, and typographical puzzles are presented with simple geometric shapes. The first chapter deals with proportions: grid systems and typographical measurements. The central theme of the second chapter is the tension and the harmony between black and white, including layout challenges. The third chapter is dedicated to the origin of letter shapes, script families and historical fonts. A marvelous typographic primer for beginners that will also bring new inspiration to experienced designers.

Book Description Niggli Verlag Okt 2006, 2006. Taschenbuch. Condition: Neu. Neuware - 'Haben Sie bemerkt, welch malerischer Buchstabe das Y ist ', so beginnt ein Gedicht von Victor Hugo über das Alphabet, das überall im Weltall zu finden ist. Das 'O' als Buchstabenzeichen für die Sonne oder das 'Y' als Zeichen für einen Baum, ein Glas oder eine Weggabelung. Diese ungewöhnliche Einführung in die Typografie beginnt mit einem großen Maßstab, den Proportionen im Weltall, und endet mit dem kleinsten typografischen Maßstab, den Schriften.Geschickt führen die Autorinnen in die Welt der visuellen Gestaltung und Typografie ein, wecken durch eine ausgeklügelte Ästhetik die Neugier des Lesers und erschließen Seite für Seite die Magie der Typografie. Bestechend kurze und prägnante Texte führen in die jeweilige Thematik ein; typografische Probleme werden durch einfache geometrische Formen dargestellt. Das erste Kapitel beschäftigt sich mit den Fragen der Proportionen: mathematische Systeme, goldener Schnitt, Papierformate, Rastersysteme, typografische Maßeinheiten. Das zweite Kapitel thematisiert die Spannung von Schwarz und Weiß: Gestaltungsprobleme, Prinzipien der Satzgestaltung und die Harmonie von Schwarz und Weiß. Das dritte Kapitel widmet sich den Einzelheiten: Ursprung der Buchstabenformen, Schriftfamilien und historische Schriften. Durch die Verwendung eines leicht transparenten Papiers wird die Wirkung eines Rastersystems deutlich. Diese Durchsichtigkeit lässt auf jeder Seite ein anderes Muster entstehen - ein bemerkenswert anderes Typografiebuch. 110 pp. Englisch, Französisch, Deutsch. Seller Inventory # 9783721205978
