Table of Contents: Thinking with Type

A table of contents that really stuck out to me was our suggested textbook, Thinking with Type’s, table of contents. Being a book that is about typography, the text is beautifully designed img_4855and the pairing of the typefaces goes together well. There is an obvious underlying grid to this table of contents. There is an an apparent three columns that the table of contents falls under. In this table of contents, the most emphasis is placed on the different sections of the book. Ellen Lupton accomplishes this by using a standout orange for the emphasized text and a regular black for the other text. She sends the visual message that this book is well organized, clean, and has great design. This table of contents is very inviting and definitely makes me want to spend time with the book more.
