    ________________________________________________


    Renowned typographer and poet Robert Bringhurst brings clarity to the art of typography with this masterful style guide. Combining practical, theoretical, and historical, this book is a must for graphic artists, editors, or anyone working with the printed page using digital or traditional methods.

    Having established itself as a standard in its field The Elements of Typographic Style is house manual at most American university presses, a standard university text, and a reference work in studios of designers around the world. It has been translated into Italian, Greek and Dutch.

    ________________________________________________


    About this PDF:
    The original scan was extracted to TIF files from the DjVu version of the book that you can find floating around the web. I cropped the pages in Photoshop to reflect the actual size of the book (measured it myself) and added colour emphasis to a couple of pages that were missing it, most notably to the “character per line” table (screenshot #2) which was significantly harder to use without it. Then I converted those TIF files to PDF in Acrobat XI Pro 11.0.3, OCRed the whole book with the built-in OCR engine, created bookmarks and overlaid the table of contents with invisible hyperlinks. For detailed overview of the process see “Workflow”.

    Unfortunately the DjVU used heavy compression so all the letters look jagged at actual size, but the images are extremely big so it’s not noticeable when viewing it on screen, and they also print beautifully.

    Currently, this is the best version you will find online. Unlike the DjVu from which it was created, it has the proper page sizes and margin proportions, very detailed bookmarks, searchable text, comes in preferred PDF format, and last, but not least, has a hi-res front cover carefully recreated from a scan by yours truly. If you print it double sided (it’s smaller than A4 and letter-size), cut it and get it spiral bound, you’ll come pretty close to the real thing.

    ________________________________________________


    Workflow:
    > IrfanView > DjVu file > export pages to uncompressed TIFs
    > separate odd an even pages to diffrent folders
    > Photoshop CS6 > Canvas Size and Crop actions for odd and even pages > Save (to same uncompressed TIFs)
    (The reason I didn’t compress those TIFs is because Acrobat uncompresses them on import even if they use the same kind of compression as its internal one, so it would just be a waste of resources.)

    > TIF 3163×5480 pix

    > Adobe Acrobat XI Pro 11.0.3
    > Preferences > Convert to PDF > color and grayscale compression: ZIP; monochrome: JBIG2; (both lossles)
    > drag and drop images > no scan optimization and OCR; create a single document
    (By the way, did you know that you have to zero pad the numbers in filenames to the length of the highest number if you’re importing more than 100 images, otherwise Acrobat will put page 101 after page 10. Guess who learned that the hard way.)
    > Number Pages > All; Begin New Section; Style: 1, 2, 3...
    > OCR > All Pages; Searchable Image (Exact)
    > Bookmarks; Inherit Zoom
    (Yes, you have to set “Inherit zoom” manually for each bookmark and it takes 8 mouseclicks. Sometimes I wonder if Acrobat is made by the same company that makes Photoshop and InDesign.)
    > Add or Edit Link; invisible TOC hyperlinks; Inherit Zoom
    > No Security > Initial View: Bookmarks Panel and Page; Two-Up (Cover Page); Fit Page
    > File > Save As... > Adobe PDF Files (*.pdf)

    I have tried different browsers but I get the same result. Each time it asks for the pw, I type it in, then it expands, and then it asks for the password again, and then it asks again, and again... I _have_ typed in the correct password, but it never expands. I am on a Mac Powerbook using OS 10.9. I have never had this problem before.

    Just had the second edition printed, I hate reading stuff on screen. The book itself is a classic; wonderful, precise and inspired.

    Wonder what's new in the third edition.

    Thanks!
