Nowadays almost all creatives work with type - actually everyone uses type - so knowledge of typography is essential. This book presents the reader with one hundred valuable and influential books on the subject. Thematic sections allow the reader to navigate easily, and thorough reviews explain the importance of each book. The book also contains three interviews with typography experts and authors of influential books on the subject: Ellen Lupton ( Thinking With Type), Erik Spiekermann (Stop Stealing Sheep Find Out How Type Works) and David Jury (What is Typography? and About Face).
