I was looking for a used copy of the book Fontbook when I came across this vendor on Amazon.com, Griffin Books, who had a new copy for sale for $599.

Problem is, you can buy a new copy from the publisher for $99. I think the $599 is completely abusive pricing. I wouldn't have a problem with Griffin charging $150. I can only hope that someone who wants to buy Fontbook will see this post before they get to the Griffin offer.

I still haven't found a used copy for sale yet, but I'll keep looking. Although $99 is a reasonable price for the new book, since I don't need it for business it's more than I care to spend which is why I'd be happy to settle for a used copy. I'll try craigslist in NY, there might be designers willing to give away their 3rd edition if they got the 4th. . .
