    Have all of those and can confirm they are all great choices. I have one additional book to add.

    The Anatomy of Type: A graphic Guide to 100 Typefaces by Stephen Coles

    It's a great book for gaining a solid foundation of both type anatomy and classifications. Stephen is the former creative director of FontShop and co-founder of Fonts In Use; his knowledge of typography is extensive. I learn new things every time I open it up.

      Yes! I forgot that one. Covers your basics of type structure, taxonomy, and dives into the unique features that makes popular typefaces unique.
