Default Book sale @ Labyrinth

A self-styled scholarly bookseller, Labyrinth Books has books on design, typography, and other arts — and I just got a sale catalog from them with decent bargains on a few very useful books (all of which I paid much more for):
  • Jan Tschichold: A life in typography by Ruari McLean (#042082), $7.98
  • Modern Typography: An essay in critical history by Robin Kinross (#079344), $14.98
  • Designing Books: Practice and Theory by Just Hochuli and Robin Kinross (#067647), $14.98
  • Counterpunch: Making type in the 16th century, designing typefaces now by Fred Smeijers (#041500), $9.98
  • Blackletter: Type and national identity edited by Paul Shaw and Peter Bain (#041909), $6.98
Many other books caught my fancy as I was poking around the web site, including Street Graphics: Cuba and Street Graphics: Tokyo, both by Barry Dawson; Shoes: The complete sourcebook by John Peacock; and For the Record: The life and work of Alex Steinweiss (“inventor” of illustrated album covers in 1932) by Steinweiss and McKnight-Trontz — to name just a few.

Very nice bunch of temptations.
