This classic book, first published in 1983 and updated in 1990, helps designers to recognize and identify typefaces seen and used on an everyday basis, and also provides assistance with the process of typeface selection. It highlights the essential characteristics of over 700 typeface specimens, all fully cross-referenced to a comprehensive index. Typefaces are grouped according to specific design features and the typefinding process is by visual inspection and elimination. 'Earmark' or letter feature tables offer an alternative but companion method of identifying text typefaces, illustrating the more distinctive and unusual identifying features of letters. Each category of typeface is prefaced with an introduction by Phil Baines examining its historical background. The book also contains an eight-page section of fifty brief biographies of leading type designers.

Only slightly better? 27. Oktober 2005
Von J. K. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I purchased the 1st ed. of this book years ago. I still find it invaluable. I thought the reprint would find more content and an updated design. While there is slightly more content, I think that the poor quality sample typography scans (assumedly from the original book) cause me to wonder if I should just keep using my original edition. It appears that even the linework and sample names have been rescanned.

I do like the updated cover design, front matter and dividers. I also enjoyed the preface by Frutiger, but I really wish more time had been spent with newly set samples.

Outstanding educational and professional tool 14. Januar 2006
Von David Laufer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As a graphic designer working with fonts all day every day, I have a library of several hundred reference books about type. I use Rookledge's more than all the others put together. The authors have devised a method of classifying fonts that facilitates two important tasks: First, identifying a font from an incomplete sample. Rookledge's shows you at a glance which characters are unique to a given font. Second: choosing a font that has the right "feel" or emotional content for a particular text.

A third thing to love about this book: the authors don't waste page space on stupid fonts. With somewhere in excess of 20,000 fonts in circulation now, there are still just a few dozen timeless classics and a few hundred more that are worthy of serious study. There are a few that I would like to have seen included that aren't, but precious few.

Anyone working to push the printed word to the limits of its expressive power will find this book invaluable.

There are a lot of typefaces in this book, and they're arranged nicely so they can be found easily. I particularly liked that letters that had specific and unusual characteristics were starred. I have used it a great deal.

a fast and flawless transaction. ( and the fact that the price was ridiculously low didn't hurt either! ) I would buy from this dealer again, in a heartbeat!

Love this book. The ability to categorize and browse type is huge. This has a great reference book.
