Reading Letters: Designing for Legibility

Sofie Beier

bk_beierType is everywhere. Whether it’s in a book, on a billboard, in a newspaper, or on a computer screen, each situation is unique and requires certain considerations to make it readable. A typeface for one will not necessarily work for another.

Sofie Beier, a research assistant professor at the School of Design under The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, has written this book to assist you in creating a highly legible typeface or in selecting one for a project. The book is fully illustrated and examines typography history, designer ideas and scientific data on the process of reading.
