Here is a pdf of the chapter from Carter's book which you are to read for next class. If you haven't picked up the book yet you can get a copy at the Pratt Store. This text is from the second edition, but if you have the new edition please read that.
The assignment I will give in class next week will come directly from the book. Also look at Jan Tschichold's work for next class. His bio can be found under the syllabus post.
