Foreword

I am so happy that Donny Truong wrote this book. It’s a succinct overview of web typography, based on Donny’s design experience and the ongoing synthesis of what he reads and studies. Plus, it emphasizes demo code for study and practice.

Donny has been designing and building websites professionally for 15 years, has maintained his personal blog with incredible consistency, and has recently been studying typography in detail. That is the perfect mix of interests and aptitudes for maintaining a practical guide like the one you’re about to read.

I have known and worked with Donny for years. He has great taste, and keeps things simple. He pays close attention to subtle details, and works efficiently. His approach to typography on the web is refreshing and approachable.

Follow along, and enjoy.
