Along those lines, I’m hoping that Karen Cheng’s ‘Designing Type’ will be good, even though it is printed almost unreadably in a light weight of Univers. However, at least the topic of this badly designed book isn’t book design.
(It’s not as if you can’t print a book in sans serif and have it be readable. The U of Cal English translation of Tschichold’s The New Typography is printed in Imago artificially widened and letterspaced, and despite the shenanigans and the absence of paragraph indentation is readable. They are trying to make the book look similar to Tschichold’s German original, so they had a big head start, but the Univers is so plainly bad that it makes me wonder what someone was thinking.)
