"Explains the different characteristics of type designs, pinpointing effective uses for particular typefaces, as well as showing each face in complete roman and italic alphabets and in family listings. The ABCs themselves stand for 'Attributes,' distinguishing features of each face; 'Background,' interesting historical information on the creation of each type design; and 'Considerations for use,' an explanation of how to best use a particular typeface, including tips on mixing typestyles and overcoming a type design's inherent drawbacks"--Dust jacket.
