5.0 out of 5 starsLookout, author a Radical Thinker17 Nov 2010

Bringhurst is fantastic. Writing about his writing is daunting, but the Barry Lopez quote on the backcover is spot-on. His typographic book is worth reading. His essays, ostensibly on this-and-that, are full of gifts and surprises whether you are a curious soul or a mystified worker bee. This book is a great place to start.

Robert Bringhurst writes delicious sentences about language, life, and culture. This is a book I treasure and read and reread.

Bringhurst is a polymath to be envied. He writes about language, poetry, typography, art, translation, Native American culture, nature and much more with erudition, passion, and elan.

Robert Bringhurst is one of the best writers ever, in my opinion. The Elements of Typographic Style is a terrific read, even if you care nothing for typography or book design (beware, you may after reading it).
