  After two decades as one of the world's best-selling books on designing with type -- including editions in Korean, German, Russian, Portuguese, and Polish -- Stop Stealing Sheep & find out how type works continues to educate, entertain, and enlighten design students and type lovers around the globe. In this third edition, acclaimed type designer Erik Spiekermann brings his type classic fully up to date on mobile and web typography. He also includes scores of new visual examples on how to effectively communicate with type and a full selection of new typefaces that are used and referenced throughout the book. If you use type -- and these days, almost everyone does -- Spiekermann's engaging, common-sense style will help you understand how to look at type, work with type, choose the best typeface for your message, and express yourself more effectively through design. Compact, yet rich with anecdotes and visual examples, the handbook's multilayered design not only makes for a fun, fast read; it also invites exploration, ensuring you learn something new each and every time you open it up.    … (mere)

I've been reading quite a few books on typography and design this month, and (considering the topic is so fascinating) they've been a bit dry, or fluffy--either extreme. This one hits the sweet spot, straight through the middle--not so academic as to bore the bejeezus out of you, not so jejeune as to induce eyerolling. Lots of fonts explicated along the way, with coherent explanations of what makes them special. Very recommended. (I can't hand out 5 stars willy-nilly--it's not going to win any literary awards, and it didn't move me to tears, so 4 it is.)

(Note: 5 stars = amazing, wonderful, 4 = very good book, 3 = decent read, 2 = disappointing, 1 = awful, just awful. I'm fairly good at picking for myself so end up with a lot of 4s). I feel a lot of readers automatically render any book they enjoy 5, but I grade on a curve! ( )

If you already agree that "typography is an important element of written communication" then there doesn't seem to be too much here. There's some talk about kerning, tracking, font weights, and their effects on how a piece of text feels. However, I don't have as sensitive of an eye as Spiekermann so the examples showcasing an obviously better or worse chunk of type didn't work so well for me. I could have done with a bit more hand-holding and in-depth analysis of *how* different fonts had different characters, or how the way one piece of text was set mattered to the reader, etc. ( )

An informative if a bit breezy look at graphic design and typopgraphy, written with character and filled with whimsical examples. ( )

I've had a short introduction to typography elsewhere and still found interesting things that were useful in this book. The main problem I had was that the examples provided in my edition (1993) all dealt with fonts available from Adobe. This isn't a bad thing if you're looking to design something on the computer, but I'm more interested in recognizing fonts in various media, rather than designing something myself, so the book was limited for my aspirations.

Updated from an earlier edition this doesn't offer a huge amount to me but did remind me why I love type design and calligraphy and letterforms, so it gets an extra half star for that itself. It made me want to reach for my calligraphy tools.

Spiekermann looks at typography with a look of love and plays with the forms and offers advice on what to use in a variety of instances. This edition is updated from a previous one with some mention of electronic communication. ( )
