Explorations in Typography: The Sequel
A typography textbook that goes into detail about setting body copy is hard to find. One that shows a wide range of full-size typesetting examples is even more uncommon.In this presentation, you'll find out how you can teach students the finer points of typesetting and page layout with Explorations in Typography.

The second edition of Explorations in Typography was redesigned, revised, expanded and re-published by an independent designer turned independent publisher in 2016. This award-winning intermediate-level textbook has more typesetting examples in more typefaces, more type combinations and some handy new appendices, including a visual index of page layouts and a list of alternative free or low-cost typefaces.

Additionally, a new PDF of teaching materials is available on the book's website (explorationsintypography.com) to make it easy for teachers to adopt the book and structure a series of assignments based on the 24 chapters in the book.
