Could you recommend an article or some different source about typograhy rules for books, catalogs and other publications in English language?
Usually there are a lot of special things for any particular language, for example using of spaces with different width, em/en dashes, quotation marks and etc. In general most of the rules are clear and can be found in any book about typography. But one of my students ask me about some kind of 'quick' manual or list of this rules for English language, and after short searching I'm not sure if it's even possible to find...
Here are a couple of resources:
The Chicago Manual of Style Online is the venerable, time-tested guide to style, usage, and grammar in an accessible online format.
Very good resources, thank you!
I highly recommend “InDesign Type: Professional Typography with Adobe InDesign, 4th Edition” by Nigel French.
