Stealing Sheep & Find Out How Type Works
BY ERIK SPIEKERMANN, E.M. GINGER
An excellent text for the beginning designer or layman. It's
accessible, loaded with shrewd examples and not nearly as
academic or poetic as the Bringhurst book. In the same ilk,
you might try Robin William's The
Non-Designer's Type Book, or any of her Not
A Typewriter books.
