"A gorgeous tour of the ways type can be integrated so thoroughly with text that the type itself helps tells the story at hand . . . If you're a type lover, this book is like Christmas, Valentine's Day, and your birthday all rolled into one."--Malcolm Jones, Daily Beast
"[A] rich study of typography . . . This beautiful book is sure to strike a chord with bibliophiles and art lovers alike."--Publishers Weekly
"A beautiful book . . . Heller and Anderson take the reader/viewer through a smorgasbord of tasty typographic treats. . . . Yale University Press has printed the book in rich color on an excellent paper in an oversize folio, production choices that enhance the drama of the typefaces and render them almost master drawings."--S. Skaggs, Choice
"An artful exploration of the boundaries of type . . . gorgeously illustrated . . . it paints a vivid tapestry of the lives and techniques of the various graphic designers and typographers featured."--Michael Opsteegh, Technical Communication
