  1. Godine (www.godine.com) publishes a book called Anatomy of a Typeface, which is a nice history of a good number of common typefaces – nicely accessible.

  2. Yes, I have read it. It’s a good source on classic faces.

    Bringhurst’s Elements of Typographic Style has less depth on particular faces, but it gives the historical framework in a coherent way, placing type in the overall cultural context.
