I found a GREAT book for typography. _The Non-Designer's Design Book:
Design and Typegraphic Principles for the Visual Novice_ by Robin Williams
(published by Peachpit Press, Berkeley, CA).

It's fast, entertaining reading. I spent several lunch hours with it and
really learned a lot! (It's soft-cover, 140 pages, lots of white space. The
text explains the principles of design and typography, and it gives lots of
fun design examples.)
