‘Modern typography’ second edition, reviewed

A long review of the book is published in the current (number 309) issue of Idea magazine. This piece, extending over 16 pages, is written by Taro Yamamoto, who manages the Japanese typography section of Adobe Systems. Yamamoto suggests that ‘by revising his original edition and publishing a second edition, he [Kinross] has demonstrated that he has continued to think critically’: a pleasing remark about a book that was always intended to be a prompt to reflection and action, rather than some definitive text.
