This is a book about fonts. Not a guide to fonts but rather a collection of stories about the development and use of the fonts that we bump into everyday. From the signs on the Paris Metro to newspaper type and the common hatred of Comic Sans this wonderful book is full of interesting stories and nuggets of font information. If you've ever looked at the list of fonts available on your computer and wondered about their names or design then this book is for you.
