Type, Typography & Lettering Books revisited

I ran across an article the other day that was attempting to teach when to use serif fonts in stead of sans serif. All it talked about were the little "feet" (it called them) and really didn't teach anything at all. That's the problem with people finding tutorials on the web. If they don't know any better, they will take the articles as gospel. Which could be very wrong. If you want to learn the real lesson from a pro, then don't necessarily believe everything you read on the web. We believe you will benefit greatly from these books -- we can attest, their information is correct. August 29, 2013
