New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I am a graphic designer with an interest in type which is becoming obsessive, and I'm starting to think about designing my own fonts (I mean, how hard can it be, we all know what a 'h' looks like).
Can anyone recommend any good books that give a through grounding in type design? I have a copy on Fontlab Studio but I'm eager to at least find out what hinting means before I absently start drawing glyphs.
