Loved by thousands of designers and web developers
Join thousands of designers and web developers gaining years of experience in just hours.
As a designer who also works in front-end code, I've been waiting for book like this, which addresses both designers and developers. Often, there is still a huge gap in the collaboration between design and code. This book will help to improve this process and make a web with better typography.
A quick to read practical guide on how to deal with pleasing page layouts and the finer details of micro typography. Good guidelines, and avoids taking himself to seriously. Admits the role of subjective judgment, he is not trying to show totally as a science.
The author manages to introduce a lot of typography terms and concepts while keeping it simple for developers (like me) to understand, notably because he uses a lot of examples. He also shows how to apply most techniques in a web context, which makes me recommend this book to web developers who want to know more about typography.
Beautifully captures all nuances and details, without becoming hard to read or boring. The techniques presented can be directly applied to your designs and layouts and will immediately improve them. In my opinion a new must-read for web designers.
Not only is this book incredibly informative, but it is wonderfully written. It's more than just helping you choose better typefaces—but creating type that is clear as well as beautiful.
Great book with hands on recommendation for web developers. In fact, it took me quite long to read because I had to go through some parts several times in order to apply the concepts in my own projects! Already recommended it to my colleagues.
A must have book for every designer and web developer. I really enjoyed the code samples inside this book
This is an amazing book. The author is very tasteful and wholesome. And it shows in the content. He takes you step by step through his design process and explains the concept of typography with practical and contextual examples, which is great!
I love the easy and clear way that this book is written in, as a non-native English speaker I really appreciate it. I’m a typography lover since I discovered it, as a classic graphic designer living in this digital era I really needed to set up all my knowledge and understand how to apply it in web design.

I finished the free email course, should I still get the book?
I didn’t just take the content from the free course and put it into an eBook format. I expanded it. The course was relatively short with around 13,000 words of content, the book is more than 40,000 words long, has 232 pages, and covers advanced topics that aren’t in the email course.
I’m not a native English speaker. Will I have problems understanding the book?
I’m not a native English speaker either so my writing always uses the simplest language that anyone can understand. You can download a sample chapter to see if it’s ok. Besides, I’m always happy to help if you have trouble understanding any part of the book. Just send me an email.
Do you have a money-back guarantee?
I do—a 30-day money back policy. If, for some reason, you’re not 100% happy with the book, I'll gladly refund your order. For printed books I can only refund 70% of the order.
Do you offer a student discount?
Yes, if you’re a student write me an email from your student email address and I’ll send you a discount for the eBook.
