Dive into the history of typesetting and printing, and see how that history informs today’s technology for both physical books and eBooks. You’ll learn the importance of both mathematical calculation and artistic taste, and how only a combination of the two leads to beautiful books.

By the time you’re done reading, you’ll have a better understanding of how computer science is used to solve problems, and the complex technology that went into every book you own.
