This book is based on three principles.
- Good typography is part of good writing.
- As a professional writer, you should hold your documents to the same standards as professionally published material. Why? Because your documents are professionally published material.
Moreover, much of what writers consider proper typography is an accumulation of bad habits and urban legends. These will be set aside in favor of professional typographic habits.
- Any writer can master the essentials of good typography.
