“Typography in Ten Minutes” is a chapter of “Butterick’s Practical Typography” by Matthew Butterick. The whole book revolves around the statement: “Typography is the visual component of the written word,” and aims to make people better typographers.
This book is partly an experiment in taking the web seriously as a book-publishing medium, so can only be viewed on the internet.
Anyway this chapter shows five typography rules that if you learn, “you will be a better typographer than 95% of professional writers and 70% of professional designers. (The rest of this book will raise you to the 99th percentile in both categories.)” And it takes 10 minutes to read twice. So have a look!
