Better Web Typography for a Better Web
by Matej Latin
I did the email course, should I still get the book?
I didn’t just take the content from the 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 and covers 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. Besides, I’m always happy to help if you have trouble understanding any part of the book. Just send me an email.
Can I buy more than one book at once?
Yes, if you want to buy multiple copies of the printed book visit this page. You'll be able to add the book to your cart and change the quantity. If you want to buy 5 or more copies get in touch and I’ll send you a discount code.
Can you ship to my country and what are the shipping costs?
Yes, the book can be shipped to wherever you are in the world. And the shipping is always free.
Do you have a money-back guarantee?
I do, 30 days for the eBook. If, for some reason, you’re not 100% happy with the book, I'll gladly refund your order.
Do you offer a student discount?
Yes, if you’re a student write me an email and I’ll send you a discount for the eBook.
Do the cheat sheets come with the printed book too?
No, the printable cheat sheets only come with the eBook. I don’t distribute the printed book so it’s impossible for me to include the cheat sheets with it.
