What do you know about Type Specific: Designing Custom Fonts for Function and Identity by Charlotte Rivers?

There's a book like that?! Wow.
I'd like to know more about it too.

I saw this book at Borders last time I was there. From my quick inspection of the book, it looked like it was divided into a bunch of different case studies with the font, its designer and application. But don't take my word for it, I just had a quick glance, but it looked like a really cool book, something I'd buy.

(Hrant, it's the Borders on Sunset across from Arclight, if you're in the area.)

Ori,

I found a link to the book at the publisher, Rotovision. There's not that much info on it though.

Looks like I'll have to do a brick-and-mortar expedition myself... avec digital camera. And I can certainly do Hollywood. Have you been to Sasoun Bakery?

Hrant,

I hope they'll still have the book in stock. If you haven't tried out Kabuki, close to Borders, they have a really good half-off sushi menu. We go there all the time.

I haven't been to the bakery, but I'll check it out. From what I read online it looks like a great place, and I'm always game for trying new foods. I'm usually in the Little Armenia/Thai Town area once a week.

Thanks, Lauri. I missed that when I googled the book's name.
