Explorations in Typography

Explorations in Typography: Mastering the Art of Fine Typesetting is one of the few books that give examples of typographic lockups, ranging from simple to experimental, rather than a shiny list of new typefaces.

However the real value of this book comes in the margin notes explaining the reasoning behind each decision.

Available as a lovely book for $45 plus shipping, or as a universal iOS app for $7.99. The app is quite limited on the iPhone due to the small screen, however on the iPad has identical content as the printed book.
