specimens

What is the future of Type specimens? are people still designing type specimens to go in emails or to be delivered on the door step? Whats the future of Printed Type specimens? are they of any use to type setters any more?

FontBook 4th Ed.

Hey all,

The highly acclaimed FontBook 4th Edition was published in 2006, so I'm just curious how relevant it is since 4 years have passed.

I realize that it is listed as one of the essential books, but I just want to make sure that it's worth my USD$99 before I pick a copy up. How often do you consult this dense resource? Do you feel it is outdated to the point where you search through fontbook.com from the get-go, bypassing the book altogether?

I will appreciate any and all thoughts.

Tom
