My background is a non-designer who ended up doing DTP in a business setting. The books I found most helpful were Looking Good in Print, Non-Designer's Design Book, and The Elements of Typographic Style. That was quite a few years ago, and it is possible the design examples in the first two books are dated, even with revised editions. But maybe you can check them out from a library and see if they are helpful. As for the typography book, I would guess that it is still worthwhile.
