Format: Paperback
Excellent resource for professional typographers trying to identify a typeface. Definitely needed in any competent print shop.

I am a professional typesetter and use this book to find types and their names. I don't know how I could function without it.

Format: Paperback
This book allows you to determine what typeface was used to print a book, magazine,etc. By systematically identifying the characteristics of a typeface you can determine what style it is (Venetian serif, Old Style Serif, etc.).Then by examining specific characteristics of certain letters you can determine the exact font. This is the only book of its kind that I know of. Unfortunately since it hasn't been reprinted for a while some of the newer typefaces are not listed. Buy it if you can find a copy.

Format: Paperback
As a design student, I need this book. I've been looking for it for 2 months. Being able to identify typefaces by their distinguishing characteristics is a valuable resource in the decision making process. My instructor had a copy, that's how I know about it. Is there any way we could get; a) Christopher Perfect to re-edit and update the book, or b) get the publishing house to re-issue it?

This book was highly recommended by the instructor of a typography class I'm taking - and it's out of print. Please encourage its update and reprinting soon!
