I first discovered Ruder's book on a shelf in FIT's library. An optically square book with a very simple cover design. The design of the book raised my adrenaline. I had never realized the real of power of white space and a simple 3 column grid. In this book, Ruder's philosophy in typography was explained into 19 chapters, showing a multitude of possible ways to see and develop in typography. He emphasised on the rule of typography which stresses on legibility and reproducibility.
Typographie: A Manual of Design is a great book to have for students and professionals.
