This book has been made to help you learn the 10 broad classifications of type. I won’t go into why you need to know them, but just face the fact... you do. This book was specifically made for printing and web viewing. Below is a brief description of what is inside the book and how it is layed out which will help you get more out of the book. 1. On the next page there are all10 type classifications on one page. (ie. Humanist, Garalde, Didone, Transitional, Lineal, Mechanistic, Blackletter, Decorative, Script and Manual.) These are the types classifications we will be discussing. 2. On the next two pages are layout guides to help you get familar with the layout of the book. 3. The next page then continues to give a description of each type classification (ie. the 10mentioned above). It will also provide the history and characteristics of each type classification and appropriate font examples on the same page as seen in the LAYOUT GUIDE. 4. The next page then provides a full type specimen sheet (an example) of a font from that type classification as explained in the FONT SPECIMEN guide. 5. The book continues like that until all 10 type classifications havebeen described and an example given for each.
6.The last 4 pages of the book explain what a “font flag” is and gives an example and also what a “font specimen sheet” it and an example.

TYPE CLASSIFICATION LAYOUTGUIDE
Similar to the script classification however it has a more natural and handwritten approach. The typeface is usually based on different styles of cursive or current handwriting and usually has a flowing look to it.. Letters of this form are usually highly rounded, and either connect from letter to letter or have a tail on the letters which leads to the next. Handwrittenscripts are usually informal and are characterised by the looser, less restrained formation of characters. The letters appear to have been casually drawn by either a pen or brush or other material. Because these types imitate handwriting, two of the main essentials when using manual typefaces are not to have too much space between the words and to take additional care when considering leading.Illustration or More Examples
