Type-ology 101: The Basics for Using Text and Fonts

A few months ago I identified 18 rules for using text, clarifying a few fundamental rules we all should follow when it comes to using text and creating documents to be readable and enjoyable. The document was a handy guide, but it didn’t cover other important basics about using fonts: the font family classifications, the anatomy of type, and some basic definitions of typography and glyphs and other related terms.

So, I put together an even handier guide that covers all (well, as much as most would care to know…) you’ll need to know about using text. Here’s Type-ology 101. Now you won’t need to pay for the class 🙂
