Description

The Chicago Manual of Style, supplemented by Strunk & White’s The Elements of Style, has long been the standard regarding editorial style in America. But as far as typography goes, there was no such universally accepted guide, until Robert Bringhurst, a Canadian poet, book designer, translator, and typographer, published The Elements of Typographic Style over a quarter of a century ago. The book filled a gaping void, and was an instant success, vaulting Bringhurst to the top of the heap when it comes to writers attempting to clarify and rationalize the field of typography. The type designer Jonathan Hoefler has called it “the finest book ever written about typography.”
