1st English Edition - Ruder's seminal book on every conceivable typographic problem in relation to texture, weight, color, legibility spacing and leading is explained. 19 chapters, profusely illustrated in black & white with some in red, yellow and blue from studies executed by the author or in the Typography Course of the AGS Basel. Classic!

Very good white cloth hardcover with a fair dust jacket including small tears, some tape repair (top and bottom of spine) and removal of paper to the front. Previous owner's name in small ink inside. Despite the jacket, a very solid copy.
