The Geometry of Type: The Anatomy of 100 Essential Typefaces

By Stephen Coles
Exploring 100 traditional and modern typefaces in loving detail, with a full spread devoted to each entry. Characters from each typeface are enlarged and annotated to reveal key features, anatomical details and the finer, often overlooked elements of type design.
Sidebar information lists the designer and foundry. The year of releases and the different weights and styles available, and feature boxes explain the origins and best uses for each typeface, such as whether it is suitable for running text or as a display font for headlines.
