    I am an up an coming graphic designer. And if your serious about design then this is a must have. Not only do you get some theory on the use of type but you also get a lot of practical examples too. Its breaks down the structure of type, the origins of type, and gives you a lot of examples of the best application for different kinds of type. The difference between an average designer and a great designer is in their type use. This book shows you how to fully utilize and get the most out type.

    Thinking with Type by Ellen Lupton is a brilliant, unpretentious introduction to typography. If you're like me, and just want to design websites and PowerPoint presentations that look good, it's a perfect introduction to what makes good typography. It's considered a classic for graphics designers, but anyone can follow it and put the teachings to use right way. The downside is, though, that I find myself annoyed by the really, really, really BAD typography you'll find in most local TV commercials. But so it goes. Highly recommended. Five-stars, no reservations!
