My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am totally a design geek, and this was a fantastic foray into the world of typography.

It always amazes me to see how society can shape the arts. When I used to study music history, the influences of events had a direct impact on compositions—the same is true for typography.

Whether you love fonts, or are just a little curious, I highly recommend this book. Simon Garfield brings us a balanced look, from personal stories, to zeroing in on a specific font, to the establishment and spread of today’s most popular trends.
