    Comments about oreilly Responsive Typography:

    Short, well written and easy introduction to how to use web fonts. Not burdened with paper typography legacy, but lot of text describing how we got to the messy state of dealing with different browser support and font rendering.

    The whole book could have been two chapters in the encyclopedic O'Reilly book "Fonts & Encodings", but the size of that book will scare away most readers who just need the practical knowledge of do and don't of eb fonts.

      Comments about oreilly Responsive Typography:

      If you're working on the web as either a front-end developer or web design then this book is for you. A lot of tips & tricks from perfomance to dealing with FOUT. Also it has a great historical introduction for those type geeks out there.

      Would Highly recommend.
