What's your type?

I'm a fan of letters. Not lettres, although I'm that, too. No, I mean just type, like you're reading right now. And that's why I love this book -- Typology: Type Design from the Victorian Era to the Digital Age, by Steven Heller and Louise Fili. Flipping through it is just enough to make my mouth water. There are so many beautiful shapes. I'd wallpaper a room with this book.

It's published by the ever-wonderful Chronicle Books, with their fab list and very sweet logo. The ad copy for the book says: A must-have for designers, not to mention that quirky group in love with type for type’s sake (you know who you are)

Oh, dear. Busted.
