I wish I could grant six stars.
Along with massive amounts of detail on each typeface Frutiger designed, there is a great deal of information explaining the technologies that were used and the advancements in type design over the past century. This is not only a book just on Frutiger's designs, but a book about the process of designing a typeface down to the smallest detail.
Recommended for anyone that has even the smallest appreciation of type and type design!
