Just a head's up about a great article over at Jon Tan's website called Reversed Logotype. Explaining the practical problems that can surface when designing with mono type. Specifically when you have some black wording, then reverse it out, white type on black background.
An optical illusion creates the impression of the white elements appearing slightly thicker.
Jon writes an incredibly interesting and detailed article on this, and even offers up some practical tips to combat this illusion.

Periodic Table of Typefaces Poster
This typographic poster, based on the periodic table, originally kicked around the internet some months back now and proved to be viral in every sense of the word. It literally popped up everywhere, and for good reason. The designer, Camdon Wilde clearly onto a classy winner has now come up with version 2, in a stylish black and silver version.

This is one of my 'lighter' reads, but the message is clear as air.
So clear, you would find it hard to actually envisage any depressive being able to convey the thoughts and feelings in a way that a non-depressive might actually have a chance of understanding. Gwyneth manages this in style, humour and decency.
It's a smallish book and will not take long to read, it is littered with wonderful quotes and phrases.
