The Adobe Original Silver Anniversary Story

For some reasons I had this book on the shelf since June when I got it for free at the Typographics conference in New York. I took it with me last week to read on my vacation and it turns out be a page-turner. Tamye Riggs has done an excellent job of giving us some insights on the Adobe Type team. I am a huge fan of Robert Slimbach’s and Carol Twombly’s typefaces and this book provides some intriguing details about their works and processes. If you attend a type conference and spot this gem, which sets in beautiful Adobe Garamond, pick it up. Thanks to Adobe for this wonderful gift.
