typography reference book

My first reaction to seeing a book called Letter Fontein in the bookshop of the Graphic Design Museum in Breda on a study trip in February was to wonder when it might become available in English. It’s a reflection of the world we now live in that the book in question, printed in China by a German publisher, but authored and designed by a Dutchman, is available in my own language (and Spanish, French and German), a mere ten or twelve weeks later...
