To be sure, typography books are hard to come by for
a city with such a rich printing history as SF.
I would also recommend Stacey's on Market near 2nd,
City Lights and Clean, Well-Lighted Place. You might
have better luck (as I do) hunting used book stores
like Green Apple, Acorn Books, etc. There's one on
Haight as well (forgot the name.) I once saw a 1st
annual TDC there, in great condition too. Good Luck!
