Only a book design nerd would read this for pleasure (ok, I did), but it's a fantastic reference to InDesign. I'm keeping it close!

Depending on your needs this could be the best thing since sliced bread for not only using InDesign, but understanding the accepted techniques for layouts and fonts.

This book is a detailed introduction to the major concepts of typography within the framework of InDesign. As a new user of the software, I found this book invaluable, as it focuses on the topics of font selection and text layout and relates these subjects to the specific functionality and menus of the program. I will come back to this book as a reference as I learn InDesign. Very thoughtful and understandable.
