Display and decorative faces: Learning Type Design

Decorative and script typefaces for display often follow their own rules. A font composed entirely of blocks will dictate its own form based on what is possible in a given space, and a script face based on handwriting will eschew classical proportions in favor of more faithfully imitating the original. Nonetheless, a knowledge of what makes a great typeface for text will help in many aspects of creating display type.
