  1. hey jacob,

    thanks for this. i’m guessing its from that class. this looks AWESOME and i’m sure it will be a great resource for years to come. 🙂

  2. usefull, but the actual DIN 16518 clasification is quite more accurate (germans, you know, they clasifie every single matter). Is not perfect, but all others are even worst ;>)

    nice job, anyway

  3. Wow, great resource! Much appreciated.

  6. well, the clasification you gave is rather old…This Type sytematic from the “Deutsche Institut fuer Normung” (DIN)-in my opinion- is more accurate.

  7. Thanks for the e-book. I just scanned through it, but it looked awesome. Will definitely be an interesting read!

  8. Jacob, good job dude! You know what, I wonder why some people on subscribe just to download the ebook and then they just leave. Do you have any idea why? Do they just love free stuff? Erm.. *wondering*

  11. If you open / read any article in your RSS reader right at the bottom of the article is a picture which has the password on it. Email me if you still can’t find it Deano.

  12. Hi. Quite curious to read your book as I’ve found previous posts on typography quite useful. Subscribed via Google Reader, but I don’t see the pswd anywhere. Could you email it to me? Many thanks.

  13. Hi.
    I stumbled upon your site and absolutely love it.
    I have subscribed and still cannot find the pass code so that I can obtain a copy.
    Could you help me out?
    Thanks in advance! =)

    I use Firefox to get my RSS feeds, so have not been able to find the password for the E-Book download anywhere on any of the RSS articles…any way you could email it to me? Many thanks!



  15. Hey Jacob,

    Thanks for this free e-book. It’s very handy. If you don’t mind I would put a link into my resource page at Your Design Blog.



  16. Hi Jacob

    I’m in the same boat as Michael (Using Firefox). Could you send it to into at please?


  17. Hey Jacob. I was roaming the pages of “Fondos de Pantalla” and came across your ad for this free ebook. Thanks a bunch. If it’s like everything else on your site, I’m sure it’s very informative.

    I’m new to the graphic design game, and have been frequenting your website for info and inspiration for a short while now. Keep it up man. I think I just may subscribe to your site while i’m here.

  18. Hey Jacob

    Thanks for the wonderful font book. I admired how you were able to bring out artistic design with text vector art in the background and rendering them in PDF. Awesome!

    On the first page, second column, second line, should there be an ‘is’ instead of ‘it’?

  19. Hello Jacob, I’m new to your blog but I’m already so addicted to it! I never thought I’d be learning about design in my summer break as much (or maybe more) than I do in my collge time!

    So I really just want to thank you a lot for this website! And also I would love to have a copy of this Type eBook since i’m sure it will help me a lot as a student. But even though I subscribed I can’t see the password.

    I hope you don’t mind e-mailing me ?
    my e-mail : [email protected]
    Thank you again very much!!

  20. I just finished reading your book and it was VERY informative. I also would like to thank you for such a great blog, I did learn a lot from reading your articles!

  21. Hey Jacob

    Thanks for the wonderful font book. I admired how you were able to bring out artistic design with text vector art in the background and rendering them in PDF. Awesome!

  22. Hi JC,

    Saw the first page of ‘Type Classification eBook. Seems an exciting work. IF you don’t mind, may I mark a typing error on page 1 item 6, second line? After “font specimen sheet” the word ‘it’ should be replaced by ‘is’…I think.

    I’m not trying to be smart, just to let you know with how much interest and concentration I started reading the book. Will post my comments after I finish the book. Can’t wait. Cheers.


  23. Hola te hablo en español 🙂 Gracias por el Libro pero aún no lo pude bajar 🙁 Encontré la contraseña en el rss, pero se me abre una ventana donde me pide ser registrada en wordpress

  24. The type book is brilliant! Thanks for posting that. I’ll get all my students to download it. And look forward to your talk at CityTech on Thursday.

  25. I hope (someday soon) to be able to produce and share so interesting things similar to this amazing ebook.
    Blogs and sites with thoughs, tips and resources
    are keeping the evolution of design, web design and illustration (amongst other multimedia areas of knowledge)alive and healthy.

    Excellent job!

  26. I love it so much! Nice typography solution, and I love the old feeling of the design too. I’ve read many of your articles, very interesting information; I really appreciate what you’re doing, thanks a lot for the ebook! I like your energetic & happy style, and very glad I accidently found you.

  27. hey man, i just love your blog. you are such a great resource for me. thx for all the great and informative blogs you post here. i love them.

  28. Great resource, thanks for sharing this e-book!

    Is there a resource where I could see which fonts are ‘compatible’ with each other? For example which font is great for title(s) and which for body text?

  29. Perfect design, perfect information. A “must be in the library” book (as i call it). Thanx for sharing it…

  30. Loads of thanks for this guide. It’s not only informative, it’s also a lesson in design. At the risk of sounding like a faultfinder, I must point out to you that in several pages where you have “angle of stress” enclosed in singe quotes, the opening quote is a grave accent and the closing quote a typewriter apostrophe. I know a typophile like you wouldn’t want this kind of “typo” to sneak through.

    Thanks again for the freebie.

  31. Hi Jacob, I have subscribed but like some others I can’t find the password to the file, I would appreciate it if you could email it to me.

    On another note, congratulations on your website I always come to find great contents.

    Thanks, Jordi

  32. Hi Jacob,

    Thanks so much for this. Have always admire your work and also for making it simple enough for design matters to be understood.

    Appreciate for giving this ebook away for free!

    Eleni K.

  33. Hi Jacob, Thanks so much for such a stunning resource. I think your idea of printing it is excellent. I think I will even get it bound at my local officeworks. Thanks again, Joy
