    Recommendations for learning Typography?

    Or font making, whatever the correct term is.. Any particularly good books on the subject? It's an art form I'd love to incorporate into my practices.

    Yes there are quite a few, I have one which is quite good actually even if it's a Walter Foster how to book.

    I've always had a big interest in hand lettering, designing the letters in grid paper is very fun.

    I like this Dover book, it's pre 1960's and has all the hand crafted stuff in it.
