    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 definitely camo.
        The only reason I didn't suggest tracing it is it may be a stock image in its original use. That can get kind of touchy depending on the licensing and your continued use.

        I can't seem to avoid running everything together whenever I post on this forum. Hopefully an administrator can fix it.

        I made a 2-sided company profile based on a local entrepreneur. Although it's nothing groundbreaking, I'm pretty satisfied it and think I'll put it in my portfolio. The only parts I didn't create myself...
