Book ~ "The Non-Designer's Type Book" - Robin Williams (2005)

From Amazon.com ~ Willams defines the principles that govern type as well as the logic behind them so that you learn not just what looks best but why on your way to creating effective print and Web pages. Each short chapter explores a different type secret or technique, including understanding legibility and readability, tailoring typeface to a particular project, mastering pull quotes and captions, working with spacing, punctuation marks, special characters, fonts, and justification, and more. The nonplatform- and nonsoftware-specific approach and Robin's lively, engaging style make this a must-have for any designer's bookshelf!

I'm really interested in typography for some reason and enjoyed this book. Definitely worth picking up.

I'm going to assume this isn't the same Robin William who was in Tootsie.
