"This new edition of Thinking with Type is an important and critical must read for anyone interested in typography and design. It presents, expands, and also challenges the typographic canon with international and thought-provoking contents. A compelling, amazing book!"

--Loraine Furter, graphic designer and researcher

"Thinking with Type presents the fundamentals of typography and page design with style and wit. What is particularly exciting is that this new edition advances the material significantly with global, more inclusive examples of how type works and for whom. I'm excited to update my curriculum with the 3rd edition!"

--Briar Levit, designer and Professor of Graphic Design at Portland State University

"Lovingly made and expertly written, the third edition of Thinking with Type is a tour-de-force of Latin typography with a serious nod towards global scripts. This is a must-read for both novices and experts in the world of type. The book itself is beautifully designed and is a joy to read through."

--Nadine Chahine, typeface designer and Director of ArabicType Limited

"Bursting with incredible illustrations and diagrams, Thinking with Type offers a practical guide for designers of all levels who want to understand the nuances of typographic communication. More excitingly, Lupton's 3rd edition of the book is the inclusive typography guide the industry deserves as it embraces the humanity behind some of the world's diverse writing systems, and the languages and cultures who have contributed to its rich history."

--Kaleena Sales, Associate Professor of Graphic Design and Chair of the Department of Art Design at Tennessee State University
