Theodore Rosendorf: The Typographic Desk Reference

Ellen Lupton’s foreword, which explains the purpose of a foreword, is just priceless. As the title suggests, TDR is a concise but comprehensive typographic reference. It even covers all the Vietnamese characters. The book is set in Carol Twombly’s Adobe Caslon with discretionary ligatures and custom glyphs by the author himself. It’s worthy of any designer’s desk.
