Monocle Magazine Picks the TDR as a Vital Life Improvement

Alongside Shiseido’s Future Solution LX Range cosmetics, The Typographic Desk Reference is one of Monocle Magazine’s Autumn picks of vital life improvements.

“American graphic designer Theodore Rosendorf has edited and designed the ‘Typographic Desk Reference’, a comprehensive hardback about symbols, diacritics, marks and various forms of typographic furniture in Latin-based writing systems. Published by Oak Knoll in Delaware, a nerdy house specialising in books about making books, TDR is a fascinating peek into the mind of our art department.”

    Yeah, I saw that. I just bought your book last month. I read Monocle magazine regularly, and when I saw it in there I was pretty pumped to be ahead of the game. Congrats — your book is great by the way.
