5.0 out of 5 stars Great Informative Book Jan. 22 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great reference for anybody studying typography! There are many photos and examples to view as well as helpful information to study from. I am in a graphic design program and think this is a book you should definitely buy instead of renting if your in an academic program.
