How to create typefaces
How is a typeface designed? What characters are required in a font? What is the difference between roman, oblique and cursive types? “How to create typefaces” is a guide that replies in a clear and straightforward manner these questions and many more. The book is aimed to both beginners and designers with some experience in the field.
The authors of “How to create typefaces” are type designers, graphic designers and teachers, with vast experience in each one of these activities. Coming from very different backgrounds, each one represents a different way or learning and making type. Laura Meseguer (Spain) studied at KABK in Netherlands, José Scaglione (Argentina) at the University of Reading in UK, and Cristobal Henestrosa (Mexico) at Gestalt in Veracruz, Mexico.
In nine chapters, authors take turns to explain the concepts behind typeface design, from the very basics of sketching and digitisation to more complex issues such as the development of large type families and font distribution.
