  • Letter Fountain is a creative’s dream. Inside you’ll find in-depth studies on the form and anatomy of every single letter in the alphabet as well as information on the history and metamorphosis of special characters and punctuation marks. You don’t have to be a graphic designer, typesetter or typographer to appreciate this guide, either. Thanks to the straightforward writing style and easy-to-follow voice, Letter Fountain also serves as the perfect beginner’s guide to typography.”

    — Selectism, New York
  • “…a book hefty enough to teach you all you need to know (and plenty more) about typefaces. With over six-hundred information-packed pages, the book contains not only a fascinating history of type, thoughts on digital aesthetics and discussions on how to choose appropriate combinations of typefaces but also a wonderfully thorough section displaying specimens of well know type faces and useful alternatives to them.”

    — Grafik, London
  • “…the ultimate typeface handbook.”

    — New Design Magazine, London
  • "Even as publishing marches into the Kindle’s cold clutches, publishers are exploring the unique qualities of print. TASCHEN’s Letter Fountain is a gorgeous, borderline excessive celebration of the many riches of typography."
