Incredibly useful book, I would reccomend this over basically any other grid book. Might not be the newest out there, but it's still highly relevant.
Thanks a lot, been looking for this for quite some time!
very recommended book.
Cool, I've been meaning to learn more about grids.
Has any seen pdf of "Making and Breaking the Grid"?
I suggest my perfect-personal grid system for publications (ISO formats: A4 etc.):
baseline 3,75 mm (the basic measure)
and from there you build:
7,5 mm (for intercolumns or margins)
15 mm (for intercolumns or margins)
30 mm (the final grid measure, vertical and orizontal)
I prefer my grids in increments of 12 points and modular.

This book it's a must!
I work always with grids specially on the web!
