Just came across this new book, Type Directory, by Peter Dawson. Seems like quite a collection.https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6584804121486872576/
Here's a snippet: "I am delighted to be able to now share a sneak preview of my new book, Type Directory which will be published in November by Thames & Hudson. With a foreword by acclaimed American type designer Tobias Frere-Jones, the book contains a collection of over 1800 typefaces, spanning nearly 600 years of typeface and design history.
The 672-page collection of typefaces is organised by type categories: Serif, Sans Serif, Display and Script, sub-categorised further by style."
