Even though Mitchell and Wightman’s comprehensive manual focuses on book typography, many principles could be applied to any form of typesetting. From leading to spacing to massaging, this book delves into great details with clear visual examples to demonstrate the subtlety of good design. The book itself is a beautiful design with the main text set in Albertina. If you’re designer who cares about readability, Book Typography is a must-have as a reference.

A book that should be judged by its cover. Most other books on book design and typography I found to be somewhat poorly designed. This one is just excellent. Very clear, complete, and concisely explained.
The only book for those who typeset novels, reference books and other serious books. In-depth and based on years of experience, it has the answers to every design choice. Just note - this is hardcore stuff.
A wonderfull book about book typography.
