About a year ago we announced the Polish translation of the specialist book on type design, Cómo crear tipografías
(aka How to create typefaces
). Now we have a Portuguese edition, Como criar tipos: do esboço à tela
. The publication, written by Cristobal Henestrosa, Laura Meseguer and José Scaglione was released in Spanish by publishing house Tipo e, in 2010 — which will soon publish a revised 3rd edition in Spanish. The book has been skilfully translated by Dr Priscila Farias and released with care, true to the original version by Brazilian publishing house Estereográfica Editorial, which is an editorial initiative by Rafael Dietzsch and André Maya.
