Books on other TeX-related matters
There's a nicely-presented list of of “recommended books” to be had on the web: <http://www.macrotex.net/texbooks/>
The list of MetaFont books is rather short:
- The MetaFont book by Donald Knuth (Addison Wesley, 1986,
ISBN-10 0-201-13445-4, ISBN-10 0-201-52983-1 paperback)
Alan Hoenig's 'TeX Unbound' includes some discussion and examples of using MetaFont.
A book covering a wide range of topics (including installation and maintenance) is:
- Making TeX Work by Norman Walsh (O'Reilly and Associates,
Inc, 1994, ISBN-10 1-56592-051-1)
The book is decidedly dated, and is now out of print, but a copy is
sourceforge and on CTAN,
and we list it under “online books”.
