Font enthusiast Stephen Coles’ new book The Geometry of Type: The Anatomy of 100 Essential Typefaces is both a great resource for and celebration of type. Each of the  typefaces – many familiar like Gotham, Optima, and of course, Helvetica – is enlarged to expertly identify its defining characteristics. Information is given on each, along with its history, origin, and designer, as well as best uses. Full character sets are shown, along with best letters for identification. A terrific reference for both professionals and amateur type-lovers.
