critical reading for the rude

writing typing fonts

I reckon a book or a blog needs to carry on with that rhythm, page to page, post to post,  and carry it on with pictures and colors (whenever used) and sounds (both audio and in terms of the “sound” of the words used, the prosody) and maybe some other attributes I’m not thinking of.  Like tone and attitude.

Font becomes library.

  1. I’ve been reading a lot about this lately. Every minute detail must be planned when setting type to reach this consistency. This includes 4mm spacing differences that might make ALL CAPS more readable and flowing. Unfortunately, word processing programs do this for us, so we are losing the aesthetics of it… perhaps this loss is bleeding into other places and you see a need to bring it back.
