There are now three books on Plone. I know that at least two of them 
(namely mine and Andy McKay's) cover making types with Archetypes and 
the necessary parts to make a CMF type in Python. I also cover 
converting existing Zope types into CMF types.

Note that Plone books are also generally applicable to CMF.

You can see them in Amazon in the left sidebar of plone.org. You can 
also get them from other online bookstores or direct from the publisher 
at http://www.packtpub.com/book/plone
