Getting equivalent typefaces on Mac and Windows machines has long been a thorny issue for designers, who up to now have had to work with an array of related Type 1 and TrueType fonts to reach their desired effect. Not so nowadays: With the introduction of Adobe Font Library and its revolutionary OpenType fonts, you now have one font file that works on both platforms¿and an indispensable reference that displays each and every typeface in this glorious new collection. In terms of choosing typefaces, there¿s nothing like the printed page¿especially when that page shows not only the characters of every typeface but organizes them both alphabetically and by style, and includes a very easy-to use quick reference that shows what every font looks like and where to find it. You¿ll learn the distinguishing characteristics of different styles and be exposed to a rash of OpenType typographic glyphs. If you wish to have to know type, that is the first and last word at the topic.
