just checked out 2 books from Jen Library (SCAD's library) today.

Alexander Lawson's "Anatomy of a Typeface" (ISBN 0-87923-333-8) & Walter Tracy's "Letters of Credit, A View of Type Design" (ISBN 1-56792-240-6)

I am very excited about studying the how and why of some of the most recognized and appreciated typefaces to date.
I will post the highlights when I've finished and hopefully some new type ideas as well
