I came for the title, I stayed for the contents

I rediscovered the book Hand Job today when I was browsing a bookstore. Its full name is Hand Job: A Catalog of Type (those crazy Americans with their crazy spelling) by Mike Perry and it contains hand-written type by 55 freehand typographers (I think they should be called "fontists"). Anyway, apart from the great name, it's very pretty on the inside. It's better than a hand job for all those typography fetishists. (Actually, click on the last link. The sound effects are just dandy.)
