Dot-font: Talking about Design
Mark Batty Publisher proudly commences the dot-font series, about design in the world around us, with two titles: dot-font: Talking About Design and dot-font: Talking About Fonts. Both books offer a selection of direct, opinionated, authoritative and often witty essays selected from the "dot-font" column that John Berry has written since 2000 for the website for creative professionals, Creativepro.com. In these essays, Berry, who is both an editor and designer himself, assesses practitioners, ideas, successes and failures with regard to the fields of design and fonts.
