    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.

      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.
