I'm longing for a type book (new or old) to digest. I've got a few but I'm itching for something new. What are some favorites?
Type: The Secret History of Letters, by Simon LoxleyLanguage, Culture Type, edited by John D. Berry
well do you have the [[triumvirate]]?
Sounds like you need something obscure to rekindle the romance? Two of my favorite exotics: "Dimensional Typography" by Abbott Miller; and "Types Best Remembered / Types Best Forgotten", Robert Norton ed.
If you want something a little different try "The Skilled Compositor, 1850-1914: An Aristocrat Among Working Men", by Patrick Duffy. Or, "The Swifts: Printers in the Age of Typesettig Races" by Walker Rumble. Some really great stories in both volumes.
right now i like alphabets by wim crowell, typeone, and designer shock.
The Manual of Linotype Typography from 1923. I especially like the "Critical Comments" parts of the pages and the tabbing, to set them it must have been pretty darned expensive!
