Just My Type: A book about fonts by Simon Garfield, is just my kind of book!
Like it says, its about fonts like Comic Sans and Helvetica, and their creators.
It's about how and why we all came to have opinions about fonts, and what the choices you make say about you!
Type Matters by Jim Williams and published by Merrell, has yet to reach my hands, although, I have had a quick flick through its faux leather bound pages at Published Art book shop earlier this week. A few reviews have noted that it can be quite brief and thats its more of an introductionary text on the subject of typography, I still think it might be an interesting read. I feel terribly guilty having purchased mine online but it was half the price, plus shipping was free! Sorry Published Art but it's the way of the world... :(
