Hyperactivitypography from A to Z / Gestalten

This book is a nice approach to introduce typographic terms to everybody who is really interested in typography. This is what the website writes about the book:

"Who knew that a publication that looks like an attractively designed children's
book could take such a revealing look at the demanding topic of typography. The
colorful pages of Hyperactivitypography from A to Z present a simple and fun,
yet amazingly clever how-to that celebrates typography in all its complexity.
Introducing common typography terms and trivia through charming illustrations,
personal examinations and fun-filled exercises, this activity book offers both an
accessible introduction to typography beginners and an entertaining review for
experts to test their skills and take away new insights into the ramifications of
typography—all while having fun."

I really like the design and the interactive parts of the book. So everybody who is interested can buy the second edition in Octover 2010 (first edition is sold out). But here you can flip through the book.
