Typography
ARST 442
Fall 2011
Section: 01  

The fundamentals of fonts, letter forms, typographic design, elements of the book, and an introduction to contemporary graphic design are considered through a progression of theoretical exercises. Once working knowledge of the typeshop and Quark Xpress (software for book design) is acquired, each student conceives, designs, and prints: first, a broadside, then a book. Use is made of the Davison rare book collection at Olin Library. While NOT a required sequence, this course is strongly recommended before taking ARST443.
