Practical Font Design has found a niche within that group of graphic designers and Web designers who want to design their own fonts. The comment from Readable Web is what I’ve hoped to hear: “If you’re looking for a brief, straightforward introduction to fonts, I recommend David Bergsland’s Practical Font Design.

    The book itself told me about the author's process to design a font. However it's quite disappointed to me because it didn't mention anything about the rules and modules to create a modern font but only a single serif font (or maybe I was looking for a wrong book). Things you may hope to learn in this book are all about the basic, the x-height, kerning anf stuff. And you'd better be a font creater or a writter to read this book. In my case, I'm a designer and this book didn't satisfy me.
