Typography tips?

I design my own covers using Gimp. But I believe the three things most important for covers is typography (times three). Can anyone recommend a helpful book or article? I've tried web searches but haven't learned much.

I list a number of free typography references on my personal web site:

http://mysite.verizon.net/william_fr...free-type.html

(ob. discl., I'm an Amazon Associate and maybe one day I'll actually make a few bucks at it)

I do list some free texts for TeX and I believe you'd learn a fair bit about typography reading:

- http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macr...oir/memman.pdf --- the first half of this is about typographic design and terminology, a good primer

Unfortunately, Dr. Asaf Degani's links have gone stale, and they're charging for the files now:

but they seem to still be on archive.org:
