4.0 out of 5 stars Great book. But DONT get The Geometry of Type' as well!!, 17 Jun. 2013
Great book. wanted it for ages, was finally given it as a gift for my birthday, and also another book called 'The Geometry of Type' as they seemed to be a good pair.
They are the exact same book, page for page. with different titles and Amazon even lists this as:

"The Anatomy of Type: A Graphic Guide to 100 Typefaces by Stephen Coles"

where as "The Geometry of Type: The Anatomy of 100 Essential Typefaces by Erik Spiekermann and Stephen Coles"

...BY Erik Spiekerman... and Stephen Coles

Even the Cover art is different.

So although very similar books, very easy to think of them as different books. they are not. They are the exact same book

Buy one or the other, NOT both!!

Great book though.
