What kind of typeface should I use? How big do I set it? How should those letters, words and paragraphs be aligned, spaced, ordered and shaped? Thinking With Type answers these questions and more, providing clear guidelines for Designers, Writers, Editors and Students on how best to arrange their written content.
Type is the foundation of print and web design. Everything you need to know about thinking with type, you will find here. This richly detailed update to the classic text belongs on the shelf of every designer, writer, editor, publisher, and client.” -Jefferey Zeldman-
Thinking with Type is the definitive guide to using typography in visual communication, from the printed page to the computer screen. This revised edition includes forty-eight pages of new content, including the latest information on style sheets for print and the web, the use of ornaments and captions, lining and non-lining numerals, the use of small caps and enlarged capitals, as well as information on captions, font licensing, mixing typefaces, and hand lettering. Throughout the book, visual examples show how to be inventive within systems of typographic form—what the rules are and how to break them. Thinking with Type is a type book for everyone: designers, writers, editors, students, and anyone else who works with words.
An official web site is set up as a classroom companion to Thinking With Type. Lupton has provided a syllabus, sample chapters, exercises and handouts for download in high-res PDF format. If you’re still not convinced about the quality of this title yet, I would suggest you head over to the site to download the sample pages and judge for yourself.
Compared to the more common encyclopaedic approach to design theory books, Thinking With Type is easy to understand, engaging and fun to read. The tone of this book is what really makes it special and is why I can’t recommend it enough.

It was thought that this track was lost to the ethers, luckily we over here at #teamargel found it the other day just hanging around on 33jones.com. Thank you ever so 33 Jones whoever you are. You made our day with this. This track features Ethel Cee and Chill Moody entitled “Let Me Know”. Feedback is encouraged. Let us know what you think. Peace.
I do it, because you need to know bout it! The samples, the mood, the instrumentation, and the voices are a few of my favorite things. The sound of this music needs to be reintroduced to the radio!

I saw him some time last year at a poetry/stand-up night in North Hollywood. He had me in tears! So cool to see him on Conan.
Everyday for the last week and a half, I’ve been hearing the sound of a basketball dribbling outside in the parking lot. The dribbling would be going on for at least an hour. It was repetitious and constant. I’m finally just looking out the window to see a young kid no more than 13. I couldn’t help looking back at a smaller version of myself repetitiously and constantly practicing. Whether it was drawing or dribbling. It was a good moment also to think on what am I doing today as a man to get better with what and Who hold my values. Am I that focused and committed to what brings me joy and fulfillment? That was just a kid dribbling a basketball, however it made me think to what do I place my practice in. Do I have a goal in mind? Whether it is my craft or Christ. On a spiritual level am I coming to the Lord in such a way? Spending that time to come and know Him in spirit and truth. John 4:23 Is the word in my heart and do I make time in my reality for Him? So that He may be perfected in me. 1 John 2:5 That experience should be daily. Like eating and washing. You don’t eat and wash once and you’re done with it for life. It is something constant and repetitious throughout our lives. Or it should be! lol Truly it is the only way to grow — an experience that is essential to life. John 6:32-40

We have been looking at the Temple Compound the Lord shows to Ezekiel, that will be built in the Millennial Kingdom. The vision of the design, the ordinances, all its laws and forms the children of Israel were commanded to follow — and to leave Babylon for the coming judgement. The spiritual principle remains the same for the Christians today. Leaving the babylon of religion and following Christ. This temple is a guide for how our life in Him ought to be personally and as a church. Church in greek is translated “ecclesia” the called out ones. So we see its not a building, but a people.
We see life in Christ is truly a progression. Something that takes time and a relationship that has to grow. He is the door we enter. He says, “I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.” So when we are saved, we go up the 7 steps of His salvation. 7 is the number of completion, His work on the cross. The completed work to gain us. This door is the door of the sheep, which He is. It is open to all for us to follow Him. Surely every step is one of purpose. If you invite someone to your house, would you leave them standing in the doorway? In the same way, He wants us to come in and go onward.
The House, the temple, this sanctuary of the living God. This is the most Holy place. The place where His glory is mostly expressed. More than any other area of the Temple compound. On the walls and door posts we see these carved ornaments of the palms and cherubims. These cherubims only have the two faces. One face of a man and the other of a lion. They represent the glory of the Lord expressed through the fine humanity (incorruptible life) of Christ and His royalty. The palms represent the life in Christ. He is salvation. When he rode into Jerusalem on a young donkey, the people took palms and went to meet Him, and cried out “Hosanna (salvation)! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord. The King of Israel”. The most holy place is where we see and should experience Christ’s life and glory the most. That the glory of His fine humanity and kingship will fill our temples. Do we present such a temple to Him? A temple fitting for Him to dwell, ornamented with His life, humanity and royalty. Personally I do not stay where I am not welcomed. All the more we must present a place that welcomes Him.
1 Corinthians 3:16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy which temple you are.
John 2:19 Jesus cleanses the temple. He cleansed it from the merchants and anything that defiled the holy place. Which was such a picture of what He would do with our condition in the spirit. He took our defilement, our sin, our curse and cleansed it through His sacrifice for He was without sin. His body — His temple was destroyed. Yet after three days it was raised! Praise the Lord. John 2:19 “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”
What manner of His holiness we ought to be! “Be ye holy for I am holy.” How do we get to that point? The Lord has to take us onward and upward. In each area, the Lord is taking us higher in Him. Everything has a purpose and is connected in symmetry. Just like our bodies. This temple is truly what the Lord needs to gain within us. The place we can come near to Him and dine with Him at His table. What is inside the house? The holy incense altar. It is all made of Acacia wood. Incorruptible, that can’t be defiled with worms or rot. Termites are repelled by it. Wood is symbolic because it also represents us. The heart of this Temple is where the Lord wants us to be. To share in His glory.
Hebrews 10: Therefore, brethren having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.
His work on the cross was the completion of His sacrifice — the 7 steps prepared the way for His resurrection. The eight steps conditioned us so we are no longer slaves to sin and death, but alive in Christ. The deeds of the body are done away with, if we have been crucified with Christ, to walk in the likeness of His resurrection. The newness of life! Romans 6 This made the way for us and prepared us to be fully called out, the area of reception — the porch of the temple. Called out for a purpose. To bear the full responsibility of the ten steps, 5 toward God and 5 toward man. This is what takes us into the House, the most holy place. These steps of obedience is what makes us faithful. We learned a priest has to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. We give spiritual food to each other to nourish one another in due season. Matthew 24:46 This is our responsibility to each other and to God. To go into the Holy of holies is to experience His glory. When we all have this experience within ourselves, how glorious will we experience such a church life being built up together? May we go onward to experience such a life in our Lord Jesus Christ.
If you look at an ant. His primary function in life is to be a gatherer. He gathers food for the colony. He works in season, so that in the winter the colony will survive. He is as responsible to His queen as he is to the rest of the colony. All of the ants have this mindset. They all have the same function and the same goal. They are the epitome of one.
Thank God the Father, we are not ants! I also thank the Father, we had such a savior of mankind. He came firstly not to serve mankind, but to do the will of the Father. When we lost our function and our purpose to God, through the fall of Adam. Christ came to fulfill everything all the prophets and all mankind could not, which was fully live without sin and do all the Father desired.
