Review "Worthy of adding to your library; it's essential if you salivate when you look at well-designed and well-chosen type."

"Design isnt just about how things look, the answer to a design challenge is more about discovering why certain things work. In steering projects toward visual solutions that deliver clear messages, we have to look at the very building blocks of design. Thinking with Type: A Critical Guide for Designers, Writers, Editors, - Students aims to get at the heart of this issue." -- Brian E. Young (March 2, 2009)

I was skeptical at first but Midnighty really came through. They answered all my questions and made the whole experience a plesant one.
