There are several books that we’ve found extremely valuable in this group that deal with topics related to type on screen. Some are technically oriented and others are typographically oriented.
I’ll start off today with a technical book that is unfortunately out of print.
Digital Typography: An Introduction to Type and Composition for Computer System Design by Richard Rubinstein. Published by Addision-Wesley, Reading, Massachusetts, 1988. ISBN 0-201-17633-5.
The book is organized in two parts, the first on individual letters, and the second part on lines, blocks, and pages.
I highly recommend this book if you can get your hands on it.
