'Type Tricks' is about typographical rules and the underlying structure of the work process in the design of new typefaces. In that way, it is both a reference book and a user manual. In an illustrative format, it presents the different stages of type design in an easily accessible manner.

Being an expert as a typography professor, Sofie Beier knows exactly what the students need to know and how they can improve their skills. 'Type Tricks' is not only perfect for students, it also comes in handy for every type designer. It gives them the opportunity to reread information they were taught at during their time at school. It's the perfect reference book.

The book contains a number of essential tricks that designers need to know and understand. The typographic guidelines are difficult to remember, but with this book you don't have to remember every single one of them.
