JUST MY TYPE - a book about fonts

Further to my posting on this title yesterday I have now picked up the following:

Just My Type: A Book About Fonts is released as an iPad app

London, 25th October 2010, Just My Type: A Book About Fonts is now available in the iTunes App Store as a book app for £7.99, published by Profile Books.

Simon Garfield meets the people behind typefaces and along the way learns why some fonts - like men - are from Mars and some are from Venus. From type on the high street and album covers to the print in our homes and offices, Garfield is the font of all types of knowledge.

The app was developed by Exact Editions, the London-based digital publishing company. Just My Type has fully searchable text, in-app purchasing and pageflow for easy navigation.

Daryl Rayner, Managing Director at Exact Editions says that "the world of Caslon and Helvetica is really brought alive when reading Just My Type on an iPad."

Rebecca Gray at Profile Books says "an app is the ideal showcase for this very visual book, particularly because Apple first introduced us to choosing our own fonts in 1984."
