A Book Apart, Flexible Typesetting
For the first time in hundreds of years, because of the web, the role of the typographer has changed. We no longer decide; we suggest. We no longer simply choose typefaces, font sizes, line spacing, and margins; we prepare and instruct text to make those choices for itself. In this new book, Tim Brown illuminates the complex, beautiful world of typesetting, and shows us how to parry the inevitable pressures that arise when we can no longer predict how, and where, our text will be read. Coming July 24 from A Book Apart. Available now for pre-order.

The Problem with Patterns · An A List Apart Article
✩ Design patterns help teams hesitate less and build faster, but they have a problem: they don’t start with user needs. “Components and service patterns have a tendency to serve the needs of the business or organization, not the user,” explains Cathy Dutton in today’s A List Apart. https://ift.tt/2JQy4NX https://ift.tt/2LSjVgP

Opinion | A Quisling and His Enablers - The New York Times
“The party’s base really does love Trump, not for his policies, but for the performative cruelty he exhibits toward racial minorities and the way he sticks his thumb in the eyes of ‘elites.’ So any Republican politician who takes a stand on behalf of what we used to think were fundamental American values is at high risk of losing his or her next primary. And as far as we can tell, there is not a single elected Republican willing to take that risk, no matter what Trump does.”

Opinion | Trump Tries to Destroy the West - The New York Times
“It’s impossible to get inside his head and divine his strategic goals, if he even has long-term goals. But put it this way: If a president of the United States were to sketch out a secret, detailed plan to break up the Atlantic alliance, that plan would bear a striking resemblance to Trump’s behavior.”

Priority Guides: A Content-First Alternative to Wireframes · An A List Apart Article
“Once an interaction designer has created a wireframe, it’s hard for many (we’re not saying all) visual designers to think outside the boundaries set by that wireframe and challenge the ideas it contains. As a result, the final designs almost always resemble the wireframes. Their creativity impaired, the visual designers were essentially just coloring in the wireframes.”
