Just my type, A book about fonts

This sounds like a very cool book, if you like fonts and type, and British humor. Just My Type: A Book About Fonts by Simon Garfield comically writes about favorite fonts informing you about their history, popular uses and abuses. If you want to get an idea of the tone of this book it goes something like this "well, I am apparently the last person on earth to know that Eric Gill had sex with dogs and wrote about it, and may have committed incest"; which was loosely paraphrased by Emily Pacey writing for Design Week, a weekly design magazine based out of London. Look for this interesting display of font history and cheeky humor coming (hopefully) late October. Book cover designed in-house at Profile by art director Peter Dyer. Sign up on to get an email when it comes out.
