If your a designer and want to understand more about type,
This review is from: The Complete Manual of Typography: A Guide to Setting Perfect Type (Paperback)
Since the Disability and Discrimination Act 2003 my work as a designer has meant that along with a clean clear layout the right use of font, size, kerning, leading and placement on the page is crucial for those readers who have difficulty. This book not only goes through the fascinating history of type but gives you detailed information about leading, kerning and the use of baselines that can help you with a clean clear layout and tricky type issues.
Is a riveting read if you are a lover of type, fonts and the printed word.
