Publisher's description: The Typographic Desk Reference (aka TDR) is an encyclopedic reference guide of typographic terms and classification with definitions of form and usage for Latin based writing systems. The second edition, in the works since 2010, has more than doubled in size to include: new historical information on letterpress printing, the business of composition, and typographic technologies of the past; current technologies such as OpenType and web fonts; expanded entries on paper and book sizes, including contemporary and historical standards for sheets and fold counts; a much improved scheme for classifying the specimens, which have grown to include more than 80 typefaces; improved topical placement: for instance, typographical rules exist as form but also physical objects when associated with handset type.
