Default ReportExpression and CustomReportItemDesigner

i'm new to custom report item's (CRIs). I would like to know if there is a way to set the CustomReportItemDesigner.style.font (or CustomReportItemDesigner.style.fontfamily) using ReportExpression<>. I know I can do a:

this.Style.FontSize = new ReportExpression<ReportSize>(new ReportSize(8.0, SizeTypes.Point));

(Also, I'm using C#.) I would like to do something similar to set a default font (fontfamily) I have already used newfont = new Font("Arial",18) for example, but that does not set the default for a CRI. I would also like to learn more about using ReportExpression attributes in general as well as writing CRI's. I've read quite a bit, if not all, of the MS documentation and searched the net. WHICH book would be most beneficial for these topics?

Professional MS SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services OR
MS SQL Reporting Services Recipes: for Designing Expert Reports OR perhaps another?
