    One thought on “Pensar Com Tipos”

    1. I liked this book a LOT. It had loads of interesting details in it for me, my kind of detail, and it had a sense of humour. Lots of funny bits, and lots of bits that made me think long and hard.I know there are things in it that will be old hat to experienced visual communications folk, but I'm not one of them. I'm learning, and I know some of this stuff, but a lot I either don't know at all or need to read it again anyway to try to get it into my head.I liked the presentation on the page, I lik [...]

    2. I am not a designer, nor am I aspiring to be one. I read this as someone who appreciates art, talent and beauty, and someone who knows the importance of presentation when conveying a message.I read this in small bits, enjoyed the info and illustrations, and then went out into the world to appreciate what I had just learned. It helped me notice the art in books, magazines, signs, business cards, web pages and so much more. My eyes fell on the subtleties of the good versus the ordinary graphic des [...]

    3. This is one of those beautiful books that conveys meaning as much through its form as through its content. It contains many images of type designed in various ways, integrated with descriptive text to demonstrate various principles of typography.In additional to explaining how to do things right, Lupton provides many helpful examples of what not to do.This book is organized into three sections: letter, text, and grid. Each section begins with an overview of that category, including its definitio [...]

    4. Nicely written and put together intro to type – I say intro, it's difficult to see what more you'd need to read about type (as opposed to observe and practice). Once you know the term for the curly bit on an lower-case 'e' (it's a Swiss dick), where do you go from there? (I say this from the massively insecure position of being a designer without any proper training who has only been allowed to use Helvetica Neue since 2013.)

    5. This is the perfect book for graphic design dummies. Really helpful and witty. I feel ready to embark on a design adventure.

    6. Ryan ShawMrs. MarlowEnglish25 October 2017Thinking with Type 2 This is a very informative book about typography and design all together. Ellen Lupton included many great examples to show what she was talking about. It is also a very well designed book but that is expected from a book about designing. It is aimed at editors, writers, designers, and students. I would say this isn’t a book for middle schoolers though. It gets really technical and advanced in some places. But if you are up for it, [...]

    7. This was one of the first books on typography, and by extension graphic design I’ve read. I still love it. Nine years later, it’s still a go-to recommendation for someone curious about type, or someone who should be but doesn’t know it (yet). I'd consider this an introductory text, or a good reference for someone who's already internalized most of the content, but might want a high level reference nearby. If you've been doing visual or information design for a while some of this may be old [...]

    8. Often when I talk to friends about my publishing, conversations are short. People get the idea of writing and authorship; they generally draw a blank when it comes to publishing. In particular, the idea that a book needs to be designed seems almost mystical [1]. So my delight in finding a new title focused on identifying and using type (or fonts) has been hard to explain…Ellen Lupton, author of Thinking with Type, has clearly traveled this route. She searched for a suitable textbook on using t [...]

    9. Do you know what a pica is? Can you explain a typeface's x-height? If you answer yes to either of these questions you'll probably rate this book no more than 3 stars.This book is a brief read filled with lots of examples of different type styles. The book breaks typography into three sections: the letter (typefaces); text (paragraphs and spacing); and the grid (page layouts). The book seemed to spend far too little time on the letter, too little time on text and too much time on the grid for my [...]

    10. This book was an incredible waste of time.I learned absolutely nothing. Apart from maybe that the best way to match fonts in to make sure their x-heights are the same. The x-height is the middle bit of a letter. Now that you know this, you don't need to read the book. The author just waffles on about completely useless history and backstory that has zero practical application. It's also has a terrible layout. Ironic. The layout makes the book really difficult to read. There are loads of little b [...]

    11. An excellent overview. There won’t be much new information for someone who has taken classes or studied typographybut it’s still a great resource. The writing is witty (captions throughout the book include TYPE CRIMES and NERD ALERTS, which list common mistakes and some nice details.) It is also gorgeously designed. She is kind enough to format her explanations with the problem included (e.g. b ad kemin g). I also was turned on to some nice typefaces that I was previously unaware of. This al [...]

    12. The book itself is written masterfully, whitfully, and with boundless insight into what type means to design and culture. However, for someone looking for direction and pointers on how to tackle a project this is not the book which will hold all the answers. There are a number of instances I made a note on the pdf saying "THIS!" or "Idea for project so-and-so," so I leave with fresh ideas. After leaving this book I feel that I am more connected to the discipline of graphic design and typography, [...]

    13. My first response to this book was that it was a little on the technical side for me. Then I saw in other readers' reviews that it was good but a little too simplistic. Huh. Well I guess I'm just a type neophyte, then.I think I was hoping to be more inspired by the book. I was inspired, but in more subtle ways than I expected. I did learn things that I didn't know about typefaces, and I enjoyed seeing visual representations of the type in text. My favorite sections were on grids and hierarchy.

    14. Out of all the graphic design-related books that I've read (and I really have not read a lot) this one is the best, so far. This is the perfect introduction to the field because it delivers the information in a way that is easy to digest. The guide for proofreaders and copy editors in the last part is a delightful surprise. My favorite part, though, is when the author provided a brief history of type. It puts everything I've learned in context.

    15. I read somewhere that Steve Jobs had an early interest in typography and that it helped engender an attention to detail in his approach to good design. Also, my brother has a healthy appreciation for typography. So, I thought I'd try to learn a little of what it was all about.This book was a great primer on the principles of typography. I'm glad I read it. I now pay more attention to typography everywhere around me.Now, how do I change the font of this review to Gotham?

    16. I bought this while drunk. See what happens when you wander around in bookstores, wasted, after just getting a paycheck? Now I feel pretty embarrassed; it's not a bad book but it still has that aura of things uncreative people buy to make themselves think they're creative (*cough* art directors *cough*).

    17. I actually really liked this and found it very useful- I will probably buy a copy. I gave it three stars instead of four because there were times when I got lost and felt things weren't fully explained, like in the discussion of grids and baselines. I'm hoping it will start to make sense after a reread and some experimentation, or else I guess I'll have to take a course or something.

    18. oh so fascinating! the evolution of type, a basic history, and practical applications. very useful for those not formally trained in typography and/or design.

    19. Lovely book. Lupton gives you lots on the history of typography, but in this new edition also really ties past to present with loads of practical advice for print and digital designers alike.

    20. I picked this up on a whim at Magers & Quinn during a recent trip to Minneapolis, and I'm completely hooked. I'm a fairly naive enthusiast of both design and type face, and this book gave me an amazingly concise-but-complete history and theory of type. I was gratified to find out that many of my aesthetic instincts for visual display are right, and learned why, which was nothing short of revelatory. Even better, I learned a LOT about things I'd never thought about. The history is great, the [...]

    21. This is one of those inspiring books that convey meanings as much through its frame as through its content.It contains many images of type designed in various ways, integrated with descriptive text to demonstrate various principles of typography.This book is organized into three sections: letter, text, and grid. Each section begins with an overview of that category, including its definition and history, then splits into multiple smaller sections about specific subcategories.

    22. "Thinking with Type" is a very informative and well structured book. It provides a lot of advice on how to choose a typeface, how to combine typefaces in order to get a contrast, which typefaces look better bigger/smaller and much more. I have enjoyed every page and I think it is the best typography book I have ever read! Highly recommend!

    23. a lot of graphics, which provides for an easy understanding. not so practical but good enough to know the basics. Complete with background info so it's also suitable for people who may take interest to know a bit more.

    24. A great book for the basics. As an experienced designer I didn't learn any new concepts but this book cemented the smaller details of Typography principals that I already knew. It's a well structured and thoughtout history and basics of Typography in different mediums.
