About the Author

Tim Brown has been photographing London's changing streets and transport scene since the 1980s. He was a driver on London Underground for many years until retirement and now lives in Essex. He has written one book based on his photographs, The East End in Colour 1980-1990 (Hoxton Mini Press, 2019), and his photographs have been used in exhibitions and other publications.

Reviews

With a refreshing clarity found throughout Flexible Typesetting, Tim Brown explains what's important in setting type for the web, but also why and how it's important. Brown shows us techniques to make sites clearer and more successful-not just front and center, but behind the scenes as well.

Just when I thought the world didn't need another book about typesetting, Tim Brown goes and writes this approachable and useful text. Students, designers, developers, and even the most seasoned typographers will gain insights into how to set type for the web and beyond.

As I read Tim Brown's new book, I felt like a smart, considerate friend was expertly guiding me through some tricky topics. Tim explains even the knottiest typesetting principles with humor, kindness, and clarity. This book made me a better typesetter; what's more, it was an absolute delight to read.
