A thorough dive into lettering. Knowledgeable. Aimed to students. Not leaving space for distraction, but encouraging curiosity.
I found a great reference in this book and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get in the lettering without the hassle of going through well-known letterers or typographers treaty on the matter.

A very interesting classic lettering book, still full of inspiration. Somethings look very dated, but some are still en vogue.
