Typographie sets out in very simple terms to desicribe the fundamentals of managing type, in both an artistic and practical sense. It is filled with insight into what is form and counterform, the typographers role in book production, how to construct contrasts with very simple means. If you're curious about typography and modern design methods then this is the book for you.

As a native French speaker, I have to say that the French translation is far less than satisfactory. Continual poor syntax, bad use of key words and use of foreign words make it incomprehensible in many instances. I finally resorted to the English translation.
I got this book well after my base knowledge was covered, but it was refreshing that some things never change in terms of the fundamentals.
As far as being an inspirational book for cutting edge typography it's not, but one has to crawl before they walk, run or break into an all out sprint.
