I ran across this Typography Handbook the other day and thought it was very well done. It gets you right away by looking at two resumes and having your rather instinctively prefer the one with nice type, even though the information on them is exactly the same.
Reminds me of how many other typographic “handbooks” there are:
- The Elements of Typographic Style Applied to the Web (based on The Elements of Typographic Style)
- Practical Typography
- Typography for Lawyers (not just for Lawyers)
- Typekit Practice
