Explorations in Typography
A great looking book by Carolina de Bartolo and Erik Spiekermann out in April 2011:
Explorations in Typography: Mastering the Art of Fine Typesetting (A Visual Textbook for Intermediate to Advanced Typography) is a vast collection of beautiful typesetting examples. Page after page, a brief article by Erik Spiekermann has been set in hundreds of different ways in hundreds of different typefaces, creating an extended visual taxonomy of typesetting that allows you to “learn by looking.”
Interestingly, the site has ‘key features’ of the book listed in the same way you would list features of an electronic product or web app.
