New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I am looking to learn more about the history of typography (what formal ideas/trends come from what eras/places, etc.), and I know that there are a lot of books on the topic, but which do you guys think are best? I have a pretty standard (i.e. limited) knowledge of typographic history (blackletter before oldstyle before transitional before modern, etc.), and I want to learn a lot more so that I can better inform decisions that I make.
I would appreciate it!
