About the Author

Michael Mitchell (Author) Michael Mitchell and Susan Wightman are authors of what is regarded as the industry standard, Book Typography: A Designer's Manual. It has sold worldwide and was translated into Polish, selling 5,000 copies.


A good style guide knows its role as a working document - and that's why the Typographic Style Handbook has become a new favourite of mine . . . It is remarkably readable and accessible
and I would guess its appeal is much
broader than its intended design-led

-- Mark Sinclair * Creative Review *

In his time as a typographer, Mitchell co-wrote several typographic bibles alongside Wightman that went on to
inform many graphic designers and publishers about best practice in laying out pages
and type.

* Design Week *

Michael Mitchell was one of the leading typographers of his day . . . The books are already recognised as classics and are indispensable. They combine his wisdom with his learning, his tact with his taste and subtly guide their
reader towards perfection.

-- Jeremy Adler * Guardian *
Perfect both for a nerdy five-minute dip and as a comprehensive manual for anyone who cares about the way text looks - on paper or online. -- Claire Lowdon * Times Literary Supplement *
