Format: Hardcover
I have been waiting for this book for years. In 1998 I worked as an intern with the Maine Summer Institute in Graphic Design. It was the last year that Mr. Weingart taught there and I was more than honored to work for and learn from him. Near the end of his week he brought out a pre-production copy of his book (no cover, editing marks on some pages) and showed it to all of us. We were enthralled (I have been saving my pennies ever since). This weighty tome isn't your run-of-the-mill portfolio book, this is a journey into the mind of one who personally laid the foundation for nearly all of us in design today. Having this book is almost (but not quite) as good as meeting and learning from the man himself. Open any page and you'll find knowledge and inspiration either in his imagery or his entertaining writing. I now finally have my copy and it is well worth the cost. Humbling and inspiring and is a must for anyone who fancies themselves a typographer.

Format: Hardcover
This is much more than another book about typography, it's the full disclosure of an artist who paints with the letter M and composes layouts that evoque the Syrian Desert. In this book Weingart opens his life, his creative path and his sources of inspiration. It's not a book of rules or absolutes about typography, but about the experience of it, about its expression and its materials. The book itself is a lesson on layout and impeccable typesetting. Through the provocative images and intimate text Weingart renewed in me the passion for this profession and brought back wonderful memories of the times when he was my teacher. Thank you for this long awaited book!

if you're REALLY into typography, buy this. Oh yeah, this book is really big, about a foot tall, and 2 inches thick cover to cover. The book is filled with Wolfgang's thoughts, explanations, and typographic experiments. A lot of lines, patterns, and typographic textures going on. Very interesting and plenty of images to study. I wish i had bought this book sooner instead of putting it off for a while.

I've got this book checked out of the library right now, but somehow I know I'll soon spend the [money] for my own copy. Every page packs a wallop of ideas. Nightly, I open the tome randomly and read myself to sleep. Weingart has the courage to fill a series of pages with oversize underlined text, another with stark photographs of fields, then off to a visual essay on the power of strikethrough. This book knocks me out.
