Just My Type
My only problem with this book is that I keep wanting to call the author Simon Garfunkel. Well, and this:
Not that it’s bad. I just prefer this one:
This is a totally geeky book about (shocker) fonts. It even has the Periodic Table of Typefaces inside both the front and back covers. (I know! How awesome is that?) You’ll learn about the war against poor Comic Sans, the deviance of Eric Gill (seriously WordPress…no Gill Sans??), the popularity of Helvetica, the brilliance of Matthew Carter (hmph, no love for him either), that Arial is considered an upstart ripoff (Font Fight!), and that Trebuchet is considered a friendly, accessible font that is useful when working with dyslexics.
Like I said, totally geeky. In a made of awesome sort of way.
