Talk:Typography

General meaning of "Typography"[edit]

The meaning of the word "typography by itself without an adjective usually include positive quality (at least 'good') or acceptable use of typography. Attaching a positive attribute is mostly redundant, unless you wish to praise a typographical work highly. When a typography is bad, it requires a negative attributive adjective, like "bad or atrocious typography". --- Hartmut Teuber, 22 June 2016 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.20.19.174 (talk) 02:08, 23 June 2016 (UTC)

Agreed. The "legible, readable, and appealing" is about good typography, not typography tout simple.

Please can somebody remove this unelegant and quite vague line in the introductory part (it seems I can't edit it) "Digitization opened up typography to new generations of previously unrelated designers and lay users, and David Jury, head of graphic design at Colchester Institute in England, states that "typography is now something everybody does."[4]" — Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.18.251.113 (talk) 15:18, 29 January 2017 (UTC)

Why no talk of rules (lines that separate or organize blocks of text)[edit]

I was very surprised that there's no section on rules (the vertical or horizontal lines used to separate or organize blocks of copy) either in this article or in the typography terminology sections.

Lots of plagarism in this article[edit]

I came here to fix a citation needed tag, but after taking a look at the source, it seems that at least several entire sections of this page are completely plagarized from source.

Anyone want to deal with this issue? (Notifying random people here; not sure if that's proper practice) DemPon (talk) 22:31, 29 May 2019 (UTC)

The "See also" in the source makes it look the other way around, text copied from Wikipedia. -- GreenC 23:27, 29 May 2019 (UTC)
The text on this article existed long before that book was published. This is yet another vanity publisher of books collating wholesale copies of a number of Wikipedia articles into a generally poor product. Mindmatrix 23:35, 29 May 2019 (UTC)

Okay, thanks.DemPon (talk) 06:57, 30 May 2019 (UTC)
