Die Kunst der Typographie

Paul Renner, the designer of the world famous Futura typeface, was also an accomplished artist, typesetter, and professor. In 1940, he published his typographic theories in a book of his own. This reprint of the original contains typesetting and design tips that are still relevant in today’s digital desktop publishing world, as well as over 70 pages of typographic terms, definitions, and old type samples, creating a peak into what was typographically “in” during the first half of the 20th Century! In addition to being a beautifully designed textbook in its own right, this book shows just how well Futura can be used as a normal text face – the whole book, naturally, was set with it.
