    2. Short and sweet, this. Perhaps a little *too* short, at least for a tyro like me. The prose is clear, the illustrations adequate, but in some ways the presentation was a little crippled by the eBook format, as I would have liked to be able to see more detail in some of the images. It would also have been good to see more examples of 'good' and 'bad' typesetting, and suggestions as to why they might or might not work.As it stands, however, the book contains a good number of useful and interesting [...]

    3. A great little pocket guide.Don't expect to finish reading this and immediately know how to combine typefaces, it merely serves as a brief guide and people new to typography might even be left a little overwhelmed. However, Tim references plenty of great external resources to help you expand on the various methods covered.Definitely worth checking out if you're remotely interested in typography. I personally never really bother to combine different type, but after this quick little read, I'll be [...]

    4. The book delivers it's promise: A pocket guide to combining typefaces. It just scratches the surface of type combination, but that's what pocket guides are supposed to do.If you have a spare hour at the train or on a plane, get this book. You'll have a starting point on how to combine typefaces for your next project.

    5. Another great book from the pocket guide series. I think they just keep getting better. As with many other books in this series, this one gets you oriented to the topic, gives you a little theory, a little practical knowledge, and then points you in the right direction for further study. I'm excited to get started pairing some typefaces! Highly recommended.

    6. I was hoping for more from this. Chapter 4, the part on actually combining typefaces, really could have used some additional explanation and examples. Some of the images seemed weirdly cropped or too low-res, I'm not sure if that's just the Kindle version, the ipad kindle app, or what.

    7. Nice handbook which I plan to consult whenever I'll have a hard time deciding on typfaces for a project at hand.

    8. Short and useful with a useful combination of information and tasks that the reader should carry out in order to gain the maximum benefit of the book.
