Word is getting out that this book is for digital people too (or maybe it is mainly for them?): ‘Counterpunch is a wonderful addition to the collection of any type designer’s library. Looking at the history of letter-making from the days of the old lead type you are able to learn the history of the art. The information that the author delivers in a direct, logical style has much bearing on the digital type design that is practiced by so many today. If you design type, or if you would like to start, this book will help you.’ Chris McGregor’s books of the month selection, March 1998, Internet Type Foundry Index.
