Understanding Molecular Typography
Understanding Molecular Typography is a book by H.F. Henderson, published in 1992, designed as an introduction to molecular typography for the layman. Part primer, part field guide, it lays out the basic principles, followed by detailed diagrams of the molecular formation of letters, numbers, and punctuation. A conclusion sums up the field of molecular typography to date, and a glossary and list of further reading provides valuable reference for the reader looking to learn more.
