This website/book is full of wisdom, reason, and examples all concerning typography, and in a broader sense, design. No punches are pulled, opinions are stated, and defense is given to each opinion, or fact in some cases. The level of detail shown here is absolutely academic. See the section on quote marks if you want to know what I'm talking about.
"This is a bold claim, but I stand behind it: if you learn and follow these five typography rules, you will be a better typographer than 95% of professional writers and 70% of professional designers. (The rest of this book will raise you to the 99th percentile in both categories.)
All it takes is ten minutes—five minutes to read these rules once, then five minutes to read them again."
I've read almost all of it at this time and I'm eager to finish. This website is bookmarked as a favorite because I know that as I continue to work on the book that I'm writing I will need to reference this website often.
