Did you know that Anthony Burrill’s favourite band used to be The Human League? Or that he was initially drawn to the art of letterpress through beer mats? Neither did we until we got our hands on this handsome tome – a book which is part biography, part inspirational guide to creativity.

A Web Designer’s Primer to Typography
One thing I hear a lot of people—web developers more than anyone—say is how they “can’t design”. They say they just don’t have the eye for it. Let me tell you that that’s bullshit.
