Books on type and how they were used

Hi All,

I'm trying to find books that detail fonts and how there were applied... My search started for this as a friend was creating a logo for me and told me about a book that he found, that details fonts and how they were applied.. I've since not had much contact with him, so the book/s names are not available to me. I like the old font's that were used to create logos of cars, used on newspapers etc from the 30's, 40's and 50's.. sorry to be so vague on this.. I don't know too much right now.. but I'm eager to learn as I want to create designs used with these type of fonts.
