I mentioned a while ago that I was going to order this book, in hopes it would actually teach me how to design type. (Instead of only talking about personality of type like so many other disappointing purchases I have made.) I opened it and my jaw dropped. FINALLY, a comprehensive book that actually shows the anatomy of letter forms and their spacial relationships. It covers serif and san serif fonts. It is complete with illustrated directions. I haven’t gotten very far into it, as it is quite meaty…a college course in and of itself…but so far I would recommend it if you’re serious. Bring it on Karen Cheng!
