brain picking a few essential books on typography

Helvetica Subway1 copy

I’VE NOT DONE THIS BEFORE, but what the hey! To have ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion tied in with my other posts on ty­pog­raphy, I have copied and pasted an en­tire ar­ticle from Maria Popo­va’s Brain Pick­ings web­site. I have edited it so that you can read just the re­views here and move on cer­tain books, or you can do the smart thing and click on over to Maria’s site and read the whole thing as she in­tended it.
