Overview

Here is a generous collection of handsome type fonts capable of adding just the right touches of formal elegance, precision, and grace to graphic projects that require a more reserved and thoughtful approach. Typographical expert Dan. X. Solo has amassed an impressive selection of 100 fonts, ranging from the airy elegance of Palace Script to the no-nonsense formality of State House and American Gothic Light.
Also included are such diverse specialties as the stylishly modern Nadall, the Old English-flavored Goudy Text Inline, and an eighteenth-century alphabet Georgian Initials, which artfully incorporates three contrasting tones — gray, black, and white — within the outline of each lightly embellished letter. Most of the fonts include both uppercase and lowercase alphabets, numbers, punctuation marks, and typographical ornaments.

Solo has gathered 100 faces without once approaching the vile cutesy decorative horrors. These are largely elegant and aesthetic. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

You can get some of the alphabets for free elsewhere. But it's somewhat a helpful book.
