I discovered this booklet tucked into my postbox of wonders this morning, after requesting it from Jim Williams, (senior design lecturer at Staffordshire University and author/designer of the booklet). Merely upon a visual level, the simplicity of the layout is really refreshing, obviously the type is perfectly laid out, and the tone of the information is perfectly aimed at anyone being introduced to the subject. Covering the basics over all bases, setting headlines, kerning, and even slightly less apparent issues such as overhanging punctuation, it provides a brilliant, physical reference point to be used countless times.

For those wanting to delve deeper into their ligatures, ampersands and correctly placed quotation marks, take a gander at the brilliant ‘Stop Stealing Sheep and Find Out How Type Works’
