"A fine new addition to both the 10 finest books on typography and our favorite peeks inside the notebooks of great creators: Typography Sketchbooks is like a visual window into the minds of the worlds most exciting type designers and, in turn, into the intricate art-science of typography itself a medium both creative and practical that has to walk the tightrope between centuries-old tradition and bleeding-edge innovation with equal parts grace and agility in an era of changing reading habits and design expectations." --Brain Pickings

"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

First off, fantastic concept. I love content, and my issue with this book is that it only features a small portion of every artists' sketchbook (1 to 2 pages max). But it does include little snippets and interviews with every artist featured.
My best way of describing this though, is this is like a really good magazine.
This is definitely a "Must Have"
