The Field Guide to Typography: Typefaces in the Urban Landscape.
Dawson, Peter.
The Field Guide to Typography: Typefaces in the Urban Landscape.
From American Typewriter to Zapf Dingbats - this highly engaging and fascinating visual reference helps novices and experts alike identify the typefaces we encounter every day. A quarter of a century ago hardly anybody knew what a font was, let alone the difference between Times Roman and Palatino. But in the present era of blogs, social media, and even a feature film devoted entirely to Helvetica, choosing a typeface is as important as picking the right tie for a job interview, and identifying fonts has evolved into a 21st-century urbanite's version of bird-watching.
