One of the most popular Macintosh books ever published, The Mac is Not a Typewriter has been referred to as the "Strunk and White of typography." The revised edition continues in the tradition of the original by providing simple, logical principles for using type to produce beautiful, professional documents. It's updated to include a revised chapter on fonts and also reflects changes in software and hardware since the original edition published in 1990. Some topics include: real vs. generic quotation marks, en and em dashes, tabs and indents, kerning, leading, white space, widows and orphans, and hanging punctuation. Anyone who needs to prepare documents for print will find this guide indispensable. It's a primer that novices can pick up quickly, and that pros can keep going back to.
