From the Back Cover:

Getting equivalent typefaces on Mac and Windows machines has long been a thorny issue for designers, who in the past have had to work with an array of related Type 1 and TrueType fonts to achieve their desired effect. Not so today: With the introduction of Adobe Font Library and its revolutionary OpenType fonts, you now have one font file that works on both platforms¿and an indispensable reference that displays every typeface in this glorious new collection. When it comes to choosing typefaces, there¿s nothing like the printed page¿especially when that page shows not only the characters of each typeface but organizes them both alphabetically and by style, and includes an easy-to use quick reference that shows what each font looks like and where to find it. You¿ll learn the distinguishing characteristics of different styles and be exposed to a rash of OpenType typographic glyphs. If you need to know type, this is the first and last word on the topic.
