In this day of nanosecond information delivery, it¿s a good thing to contemplate the letterforms we use every day. Mr. Bringhurst¿s book is a good read and an excellent reference book for anyone working in the typographic arts. The layout of the book is the author¿s expertise in physical form. Comprehensive. A visual and tactile treat!
