A third thing to love about this book: the authors don't waste page space on stupid fonts. With somewhere in excess of 20,000 fonts in circulation now, there are still just a few dozen timeless classics and a few hundred more that are worthy of serious study. There are a few that I would like to have seen included that aren't, but precious few.
Anyone working to push the printed word to the limits of its expressive power will find this book invaluable.
I do like the updated cover design, front matter and dividers. I also enjoyed the preface by Frutiger, but I really wish more time had been spent with newly set samples.
