On Monday I ran across this book on Amazon aptly titled Type Addicted. In the past six to eight months, I've had a renewed vigor for type (I was hopelessly addicted after my first typography class at Kansas State University in 2003). And now, once again I can't get enough of it. My new book arrives today compliments of free 2 day shipping via my trial version of Amazon Prime.
One of the blogs I check on a daily basis has had somewhat of an ongoing discussion about newspaper design. Pentagram recently redesigned the layout for the Khaleej Times and the author commented that he doesn't get very excited about newspaper design. For the most part, I have to agree on that point. Newspapers in the United States can be especially hideous. The Virginian Pilot however, proves that sentence wrong (although I can't say the same for their website).
