New: Book Report: The Non-Designer's Design Book

An introduction to layout design. There are general principles; there was also more detailed advice on designing brochures, business cards, and other stuff I don't care about. But the general principles seem like stuff I could apply.

Families of type. Don't use two typefaces from the same family--they'll be similar enough such that they won't work for contrast. That rule of thumb of using sans-serif vs. serif for headers vs. body text comes from this general principle.
