Every time I see the phrase "good web typography", I feel a painful surge of despair. I don't think a good book on "excellent web typography" exists, largely because I don't think it's possible. That said, there's an interesting article on readability on the web in the most recent issue of TYPO magazine, #13.

the only web typography book that i am aware of, and i own it, it's not bad, but i would recommend you to check it out first in a local store before you buy it.

Great Web Typography by Wendy Peck

Hi Karl, I'll be moving your request to General Discussions.

Karl,
If you spoke German this would be good to start with:
"Typo und Layout im web" by Ulli Neutzling
www.typo-und-layout-im-web.de
The book helped me, as I was working on a project a couple
of years ago but since the web is such a versatil medium I don't
know which one is good in the moment.
So I think I join you in the question about excelent books, updated
and in english about typography in relation to website design.
Any sugestions?

Thanks


Patricia
