TT: Step by step

I spent Monday night going over the typographical design of Pops: A Life of Louis Armstrong with the finest of fine-tooth combs. Unlike most authors, I take a passionate interest in the interior design of my books. I believe that the typeface in which a book is set is the accent in which a writer speaks to his readers, and I want every page of Pops to be both easy to read and unobtrusively pleasing to the eye. I'll show you the fruits of my labors as soon as we've locked in the final design, but I can already promise you that Pops is going to be an exceedingly good-looking book.
