As all of Heller's books, a beautiful presentation. My own preference for historical referencing of type especially endears this book to me. It will be a valuable library addition for whoever appreciates historical type, & post modern typography.

It's too easy to rely on design blogs for inspiration, but you can't get this from a blog. Any designer or artist who digs beautiful type and lettering (which is everyone, I'm guessing?) will find heaps of value in this book.
