We once thought we were seeing only letters, but now, thanks to the digital age, we know that fonts carry their own meaning. The language of typography, however, never seemed as accessible and amenable as it does in the hands of Simon Garfield. Already hailed as a classic in the UK, his Just My Type makes the tongues of these blocky slots intelligible in unprecedented ways. As one reviewer noted, Garfield's great strength is his storytelling: "His book comprises dozens of lovely vignettes, anecdotes that make a potentially dusty subject utterly compelling." Editor's recommendation.
