Everyone is a typographer. This is the inevitable conclusion when looking at the way in which today's computer users are forced to make decisions about fonts and layout for their day-to-day communication. Writing, typesetting and printing have become part of almost everyone's experience. However, many users are clueless about how fonts work, what constitutes a functional layout and how to communicate best with readers. There has even been a decline in basic typographic knowledge among young design professionals. And yet, a thoughtful and purpose-driven shaping of text lies at the basic of effective, powerful graphic communication. Shaping Text takes a practical and broad approach to typography. It is aimed at design students and graphic designers, and also at those who are concerned with content: writers, editors and publishers. Showing a wide range of examples from first-rate designers across the world, the book examines why and how typographic designs work well in a given context. Particular attention is given to the team play between the text itself - written language - and the design - the shaping of the text - to form a new, multi-level visual message with a complex content. Many textbooks on typography look at the details of type and lettering first, often taking a historical approach, then zoom out to gradually reveal a larger whole. Shaping Text works the other way around. It starts by looking at graphic products - in print, on the screen and in the environment - and then examines the constituting elements, including type, image, ornament, layout, and colour. Historical examples are used as references for most genres of text-shaping, a chronological overview of type design and printing techniques forms a lengthy appendix rather than the core of the book. Finally Shaping Text is firmly rooted in contemporary design praxis. It discusses the state of the art in type design and technology, and tackles problems and questions that font users may be struggling with. Besides being a typographic writer and consultant for leading companies such as FontShop and MyFonts, the author has worked as a graphic designer and teacher, Shaping Text reflects this broad experience with typographic form and content.

After the Storm

'After the Storm' shares the unforgettable story of a 19th-century quilter through some of the most challenging times in American history. This story is told 'in her own words' through diary entries and a memoir she dictated to a grandchild shortly before her death. Hannah Applegate Benson Stone weathered many personal storms in her life yet found strength in her family, friends and community. Orphaned very young during the tumultuous years of the Civil War, and raised by a caring aunt in a small New England farming community, she grew from a frightened child to a confident woman, and successful quilt pattern designer. At a time when women had few opportunities available to them, she witnessed and participated in sweeping changes as her limited world expanded. This fictionalized memoir is based on many of the author's own life experiences transposed to another time. These 'memories' bring Hannah's story to life. Readers will experience for themselves what it was like to grow up without any of the modern conveniences we take for granted and the excitement of discovering one's own strengths. They will mourn and rejoice with Hannah as she matures into a loving wife and mother as well as a creative and successful business woman. It is a timeless story of love, loss, and resilience. 'After the Storm' will appeal to anyone who enjoys quilting or other crafts and reading historical novels. Young teens, especially, may enjoy learning about what it may have been like to grow up in an earlier time and what it takes to become a strong, resilient woman. This book will also appeal to readers of the novels of Nancy Turner: 'These is My Words', 'Sarah's Quilt', 'The Star Garden', and 'Resolute'. Highly recommended for Home Schoolers who will learn about living in a 19th-century farm community, (growing and producing everything needed for a self-reliant life), the changes that came to rural America after the Civil War with the advent of the railroad and 'modern' conveniences such as the treadle sewing machine and how to create and rely upon community to survive. '… This tender portrayal of love, loss, and resilience and the potential healing power of family, friends, and community, invite you to ponder the gifts and challenges of your own ancestry.' --Edie Hartshorne, MSW, musician, artist, and author of Light in Blue Shadows '…A lovely story of a young … quilter … and her life in rural nineteenth century New Hampshire …' --Morna McEver Golletz, Founder/CEO International Association of Creative Arts Professionals and Creative Arts Business Summit
