As it turns out, the basic principles of typography are an important component of great graphic design. Hence the reason why I recommend this compilation. While the typography book isn't quite as strong as the design one, it's good and sufficient to give you a solid foundation.
I recommend this book to all of my interaction designer colleagues, as well as product managers, developers, and marketers. While this book alone won't make anyone a designer, it's a good start. And it helps make my life as a designer easier when the people I work with are more sensitive to basic design issues.
