Here are the type crimes that Lupton bluntly describes though out the book.
Tracking lowercase letters
Horizontal and vertical scaling
Some typefaces look good at a large size,but when smaller look weak.
Minimal differences in type size make some designs look unrestrained.
Tightly tracked text
Auto spacing give an uneven effect
Poorly shaped text blocks
Full of holes in a column
Bag rag caused by an ugly wedge
Punctuation eats the edge if used excessively.
