Texts on Type is an amazing collection of essays on typography written by design superstars. Paul Rand, Jan Tschichold, Rick Poynor, Lazlo Moholy-Nagy, Beatrice Warde, Emil Ruder, and on and on. Counterpunch explores 16th Century metal printing types by looking at the negative space of letterforms. It’s a great account of what the type design process was like in the early days of printing. Reading this book made me want to visit The Plantin-Moretus Museum in  Antwerp, Belgium.
