For professionals with an unlimited budget for buying new fonts, here's just the book for you! Broken into age brackets, mood styles, and more, it will show you typefaces that you will fall in love with - but will have to buy. Good backgrounders on type particularly the comments in each section about the things to consider for that particular group. If, on the other hand, you're creating things on your desktop (even with advanced graphics/publishing programs) and are looking to maximize the impact of what you've got onboard already, find a different resource. Even with a wide variety of graphics and publishing programs on your computer (ID3, CGX3, etc.), you STILL won't have the fonts that are shown in this book - all of which come at a price from various print foundries. And, sadly, there's no cross reference guide so that you can use something you might already have that's 'pretty close'.... Nice book - but not for those seeking to use the type fonts they've received with various programs. ( )
