    Stop Stealing Sheep & Find Out How Type Works by Erik Spiekermann is a short, easy to ready book on type. Good for a beginner. It's about type setting rather than type design though.
    It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

      Some texts may be useful for theoretical knowledge, but I think to actually be able to create some beautiful, original typefaces , it's best to just look at lots of typefaces by professional type designers.

      Maybe pick up the Umbrella Type Specimen Book. The cover itself is beautiful, and there's a ton of beautiful typefaces in there as well.

        It's just what I call it when people use an expression that actually says or means the opposite of what is intended; ''could care less'' would be another prime example.

        That makes sense, I guess. Off is the inverse of on, which makes based off the inverse of based on. Got it. ...

        Okay, I know what a colloquialism is, but what is an inverse colloquialism?

        Probrien, in addition to HotButton's comments, which I agree with, the ad is a bit confusing. Maybe it's lacking...

        ''Based off'' is inverse of ''based on.'' ''Based on'' is a colloquialism.
        I think.
        I have not had enough to drink to play this game.

        Thanks for the feedback. That all makes a lot of sense. I'll take these points and re-work things....
