"Typography Sketchbooks (Princeton Architectural Press 2011), covers just about every nuance of visual communication from just about every possible approach to type design, from the highly controlled sketches of Matthew Carter (Cambridge, MA) to the free-wheeling headline sketches of Andy Smith (London, UK) to the sublimely beautiful photographic alphabets of Bob Aufuldish (San Anselmo, UK). It's a must for musing and inspiration for visual narrators. And it includes URLs for the contributors." --- DART: Design Arts Daily

Quite a delight to look through the pages bursting with every possible approach to this subject.
It is always a privilege to view sketchbooks, especially if they are the genuine article and not a worked over and spruced up variation and this book is certainly no exception.
A delight right through and many happy hours of browsing ahead.
Thank you to the authors.
