I Love Typography
Jason Santa Maria
The second edition – with a foreword by Erik Spiekermann – has over doubled in size, the specimens have been reclassified to modern standards, and the index (now 1/6 of the book) has been deeply cross referenced, allowing you to – among other things – find glyphs required for a particular language.
This edition goes further back into history for the simple reason that our making and using of type today is fundamentally based on the past. Read a little about type history and you’ll find we’ve actually done most of this stuff before. Read a little more and you’ll see into the future.
