A strong text to explain the principles of typography in print publishing to individuals who've never approached the topic before. ( )

A very approachable on typography from a desktop publishing point of view. Outlines ideas and concepts clearly, encouraging the reader along the way. Great examples. Small but packed with goodness. Good to review once and a while in case you've developed any bad, lazy habits. ( )
