Ruder's seminal book on every conceivable typographic problem in relation to texture, weight, color, legibility spacing and leading is explained. Introduction with 18 chapters (Function and form, Arrangements, Contrasts, Unity of text and form, Variations, Proportions, etc.), 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. With photographs by Armin Hofmann, Werner Blaser and André Gürtler. A classic, highly recommended!

A nearly fine white cloth hardcover with a small previous owner's signature and mailing label on the front free endpaper. A beautiful dust jacket with a slight crease and hint of light wear. A lovely copy of the original edition!
