Review: The Fundamentals of TypographyUser Review - Rachel Green - Goodreads
Now that I've read this, it's more of a long-term read: meant to be read over a bit of time. Not something that you can easily read through in a matter of days or hours. Also, you'll definitely pay more attention to how type appears after reading this. It's...an interesting phenomenon. Read full review
