"The amount of research and understanding required to pull off a book of this kind is mind-boggling. . . . This is a beautiful book. It has what we in the business call 'high production value.' The interior is printed on coated text paper with brightly colored pages. The binding is hardcover and there is a ribbon! . . . A-Z of Typography is a delightful book, full of engaging information about a subject that is ubiquitous yet full of so many mysteries. I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in typefaces, from the complete novice to seasoned typophile."--Publishing Research Quarterly
