To learn the BABA from the typography, this would be only to include/understand the significances and characteristic of the names of the bills of character and the applications for which they were conceived.-
"art to handle the characters starts with the drawing of characters, extends to their combination in words and sentences to lead to page-setting of documents.
The choice of the character influences the interpretation of the text. It expresses an environment clearly and implies on behalf of the typographer a good knowledge of the "semantics" of the letters in order to use them advisedly."
In short, whoever wishes to launch out in the field of the edition should at least learn the BABA from the typography, this would be only to include/understand the characteristics of the names of the bills of character which it uses and applications for which they were conceived.
