The best book if you are involved with type & typograhy,
By A Customer
This review is from: Counterpunch: Making Type in the Sixteenth Century, Designing Typefaces Now (Paperback)
Fred Smeijers revails a whole new theory about how punchcutters operated in 'the lead age'. That this is of use to a modern, digital typeface-designer may surprise a lot of people, but if you read this book, you'll know it. Brilliantly illustrated by Fred himself, and the typeface used, the 'Renard', has all the potency to beat a lot of so called 'serious serifs'. He may seem very direct in his choise of words, but perhaps its because he is right!?
Read and enjoy!
