Like handwriting, but it actually does reveal who you are
Bringhurst is the best, an inspiration, but look out for Robin Kinross's Modern Typography if you really want to get into the nooks and crannies and meanings of different typographies... Lovely work, mind-opening in the best possible way. Basically _anything_ from Hyphen Press is worthwhile, similar to the books from Atlas Press and the Dalkey Archive...
I am taking full credit for this train of thought and eagerly await my royalty cheque.
Yeah, the kindle doesn't deal with stuff like this well, if at all. Especially the delightful “SIGNIFICANT AND MEANINGFUL PAUSE”
This is why I love dead-tree books.
Don't get me started on advance copies of books sent by publishers as the kindle will take the PDF (gods how I hate it when I see 'protected PDF' on NetGalley) and promptly butcher it, inserting random page numbers, breaks, or even in one case, the author's name mid-sentence rather than where it usually lives, at the top of each page.
