    Fonts surround us every day, on street signs and buildings, on movie posters and books, and on just about every product that we buy. But where do they come from, and why do we need so many? Who is responsible for the staid practicality of Times New Roman, the cool anonymity of Arial, or the irritating levity of Comic Sans (and the movement to ban it)?

    Great book, but I was disappointed that there was no accompanying pdf to display the typefaces. Since this is a big part of the print book experience, it's a dumb oversite. The "pdf extras" on the publisher page is a list of websites, not any of the book's necessary illustrations.
