I will admit right up front, that while I sorta get it, I’m still not a 100% sure exactly what ‘typography’ means. Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines typography as “the style, arrangement, or appearance of typeset matter.” Part of my hesitation with fully understanding it might even stem from being scared to even attempt to pronounce it.
Oh my, why are my shortcomings so long?!
But I know three things about Typograhy with regard to the Everyman's Collection:
So, without further ado, I don’t totally have my hands around what exactly typography is just yet, but I know I love the font and the layout and the look of the pages and text of these books.
The visual of all these things combined makes me want to be in the company of these books and along with the author's prose, propels me to turn their pages, one by one, from the beginning to the end.
I'd say that’s pretty important when it comes to reading.
So, to this Peter B. Willberg, I tip my hat to you.
