Fluid Web Typography

Despite the not-so-attractive cover, Jason Cranford Teague’s Fluid Web Typography is an informative crash course on designing Web sites with typefaces beyond Arial, Times, Verdana, Trebuchet MS, and Georgia. FWT touches on the fundamental elements of typography, provides the list of cross-OS Web fonts, and breaks down the three methods of using fonts: linking (@font-face), third-party services (Typekit, Kernest.com, Typotheque), and embedding with Javascript (Cufón). The resource section also included my man Tim Brown’s Nice Web Type.
