Russell's Modern Logarithms [PDF]
Perhaps the only new book of logarithms published this century. Includes worked examples of how to use the tables.

LaTeX source available on request, though it currently tickles a bug in a package that is a pain to patch.

Thanks! Don't know if I'll ever have a chance to use this tool, but I sure do like having it in my box. Looks nice too, good work on the design.

What typeface[s] did you use?

I used Iwona Condensed. These tables need very condensed type if you've a hope of fitting everything across a page. I realised that I was free to use colour as a visual location guide. If I were stuck with black and white, I'd have done something different.
