New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm doing a quick survey to ask, 'what was your first book about typography?'
Particularly, which books were on your first year (freshman) university/college/apprenticeship reading list? And which of these was the first that you bought, read, and referred to early on in your typographic education.
For me it was James Felici's Complete Manual of Typography.
