Format: Hardcover
The first half of the book contains well-written essays on typography from various typographers from around the world:
Voices, languages and scripts around the globe / Robert Bringhurst
Unicode, from text to type / John Hudson
ITC Cyrillics, 1922- / Maxim Zhukov
How do the Japanese read? / Akira Kobayashi
An approach to non-Latin type design / Fiona Ross
A primer on Greek type design / Gerry Leonidas
Zvi Narkiss and Hebrew type design / Misha Beletsky
Type ramblings from Afrika / Saki Mafundikwa
Arabic type and typography / Thomas Milo
Civil Type and Kis Cyrillic / Vladimir Yefimov
Pickled herring and strawberry ice cream / Adam Twardoch
The other half of the book contains typographic visual examples and work from famous typographers in color and B/W. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in studying typography. Essays are better written than those on "Looking Closer" series.

Format: Hardcover
This is by far the most beautifully designed book I have. The binding is elegance like I have not seen in a long time. Definitely gives off that "wow" factor when you first open the box.
But it's what is inside that counts. It is put together so well, the writing is fantastic and well illustrated. The articles are of great interest and will be as essential to me as Bringhurst's Elements of Typographic Style has been. Highly recommended.

Shipping took a while but USA/Italy are not really close so it's ok. Very interesting articles, with lots of images and examples. Great for every type designer not just focused on latin alphabet
