Whats a good book on Typography ?

Asked by mirza (5042points) April 4th, 2008

I am looking for a book that has pictures / illustrations of various fonts. Don’t really need the history or anything else. Just a book that features a lot of typefaces. And hopefully a cheap book.

PS. please don’t suggest the FontBook

Oh god, I have a few books that could give you a full fontgasm. I’m away from home right now, however, as soon as I’m back i’ll post the ones I find the best. For now, look through www.veer.com they have an amazing selection.

“Elements of Typographic Style” is a classic

Oh, after reading your details maybe it’s exactly what you aren’t looking for.
