Karl,
If you spoke German this would be good to start with:
“Typo und Layout im web” by Ulli Neutzling
www.typo-und-layout-im-web.de
The book helped me, as I was working on a project a couple
of years ago but since the web is such a versatil medium I don’t
know which one is good in the moment.
So I think I join you in the question about excelent books, updated
and in english about typography in relation to website design.
Any sugestions?

Thanks


Patricia

Not a book, but here’s A List Apart’s Typography section.

Every time I see the phrase “good web typography”, I feel a painful surge of despair. I don’t think a good book on “excellent web typography” exists, largely because I don’t think it’s possible. That said, there’s an interesting article on readability on the web in the most recent issue of TYPO magazine, #13.

the only web typography book that i am aware of, and i own it, it’s not bad, but i would recommend you to check it out first in a local store before you buy it.

Great Web Typography by Wendy Peck
