This is a really great book. It's informative, it's thorough, and if you enjoy typography, or even if you don't, it's interesting to read. It's especially good for class.

Format: Hardcover
As a textbook, it's pretty good, with a solid appreciation for typography as part of the history of graphic design. But don't be fooled if you think that it's anything more than a textbook, since you can get much better information and much better insights elsewhere. And, as a textbooks, it's merely a Meggs wanna-be.
