- What are beginner’s books on typography? 6 answers
There is russian book, The Publisher’s and Author’s Handbook by Arkady Miltchin and Ludmila Tcheltsova which is well-known and considered the best comprehensive guide to typography and writing of text in Russian (formatting, margins, font sizes and so on). You can get the idea if you peek my link (even though everything is in Russian).
Is there an American alternative available?
