While browsing through the limited selection of graphic design books in Gelman Library at George Washington University, I came across Carl Dair’s Design with Type. Flipping through it, I was impressed by the exemplary typographic illustrations. I checked it out and couldn’t resist. In fact, I just finished reading it and already want to reread it to soak everything in. Dair nails down typography like a musician breaks down his chords. He knows how to explain type so readers understand and he does so with clear, simple and tasteful approach. This book is without a doubt a classic.
