Inside Paragraphs: Typographic Fundamentals

By Cyrus Highsmith

Inside Paragraphs is about what goes on inside a paragraph of printed text. Its goal is to help readers train their eyes to see text as typographers do, beginning with general explanations of how type works and how we read. Highsmith then steps through the different kinds of space within a paragraph and finally puts everything together with a discussion about paragraph settings.
