hi Typohiles.

I am a self-taught Designer. And my major work area is Illustration & Web. And i do have an interest in Typography.
I would appreciate if i can get some Book recommendations from you experts. I have been reading & following various type blogs around the webosphere, so if you are aware of books which are lot more detailed & still worth buying, please let me know !

Thanks ! :)

The secret history of letters by Simon loxley, is a must I would sat, before you can move forward it's always good to look back and see where you fit it to the grand scheem :)

I'm self-taught too, and my advice would be to stick around! I've learned a lot from the great community at Typophile :-)
