Rookledge's international typefinder: The essential handbook of typeface recognition and selection by Christopher Perfect
English | 1983 | ISBN: 0913720453 | 268 Pages | PDF | 28.5 MB

This classic book, first published in 1983 and updated in 1990, helps designers to recognize and identify typefaces seen and used on an everyday basis, and provides assistance with the process of typeface selection.

A traditional overview of typeface classifications, and how letterform details differentiate specific typefaces into different classes. When I first picked it up in 1984, I used it as an index for further research. Today, it serves me as a reference and reminder of what the typeface landscape looked like just before the personal computer era started.
