I love reading sci-fi, fantasy, dystopian and eutopian literature. I also read technical books related to software development.

Just My Type: A Book about Fonts

Just My Type: A Book about Fonts - Large swaths of this book are excellent. There are a few chapters I could have done without, such as the chapter on font personality quizzes, but overall, this is a good introduction to many different fonts. I read the ebook and was pleasantly surprised to see so many of the fonts actually embedded in the file. In a few cases there were rendering artifacts caused by this, but it wasn't terribly distracting. There was a bit of trouble with the editing, however. Every new chapter had a set of run-on words between the first and second page which would have been caught by anyone reading the text, so I'm not sure how that was left in. In any case, worth a read as an easy to get into intro to type.
