Summer Reading for a Designer

I picked up a this great book in Oban’s Waterstones last week, Just My Type, a book about fonts by Simon Garfield. I had gone in to look for a few novels for summer reading as we are off on hols next week, but inevitably I stray into the further reaches of the bookshop and found this in the small design section. I’ve been delving in whenever I have had a spare moment and it’s a great little book full of short chapters giving the human stories behind a host of familiar fonts. Ok, maybe not for everyone, but I’m enjoying it!

No chic-lit here!
