American Metal Typefaces

Does anyone have the book "American Metal Typefaces of the 20th Century?" What do you think of it? Does it have complete showings of a face's characters?

Thanks

Troy

I've got it. It's pretty extensive. Most of the time (more than 70%) it shows a complete specimen

... and with some commentary from Mac McGrew.

If you are wondering if the book is worth buying I would give it a strong buy recommendation.

Ah, yes. I would recommend it as well. Not a beautiful book ? kind of like a giant, hardcover Dover book ? but the content makes up for that in spades. Thousands of faces!
