The Typography Manual

By Justin Stahl

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


"The more I use The Typography Manual, the more I fall in love with it and find fascinating bits of information I never knew I needed."
*5 Stars* - Macworld

The Typography Manual is a pocket resource for graphic designers and anyone that works with type. It provides all the essentials of a book reference on your iPhone or iPod Touch!

The Type Manual features a 60+ page book covering the history of type, type basics, how to properly set text and special characters, typography on the web, graphic design topics, and more.

The Visual Type Anatomy Glossary is a 100+ glossary of type terminology that doesn't just give you a definition, it shows you on the letters themselves.

Use the Style Guide to correctly set numbers, punctuation, capitalization, titles, and references.

Not sure how to create that degree symbol or currency mark? Use the Mac Character Keyboards to quickly find the key combination you need. Putting that special character into HTML? Hop over to the HTML Character Codes to find the right HTML number.

The Em Calculator can speed up your development time in creating scalable type for the web by doing the division for you.

Reading a magazine and curious what the type size is? Use the Font Size Ruler to get an estimate in serif or sans-serif.

The Type Manual also has references for paper and web banner sizes, resources on the web, inspiration and blogs, and a listing of type foundries.

"The Typographic Manual is exactly the kind of thing that shows off the kind of application/content hybrid publishing model that the iPhone is such an excellent platform for. A thing of beauty." - Edd Dumbill

"Absolutely incredible app. I'm really astonished at how great it is."

"The more I play with it, the more amazing this app is! You really thought of everything!"

"This is bar none the best app I’ve seen on type. A must have if you’re a designer."

Customer Reviews

Great resource

In the morning when I sit in my car, procrastinating going in to work, I sometimes sit and browse the Typography Manual to see what new thing I can learn. Love it. I would love to see the interface updated someday, but that is a minor issue. It works and is useful. What more could I ask for?

It's back!

Thanks a million. This app is a fantastic resource which i've been waiting to recommend again to students and colleagues.
