Reading Letters: Designing for Legibility

Written by someone who holds a PhD on typeface familiarity and its relation to legibility, Reading Letters is packed with research on reading process, history of typography and visual illustration. Sofie Beier has done an exceptional job of pulling together all three aspects to give readers the art and technicality of legibility. From text sizes to letter spacing to the capitals and italics to choosing between sans and serif, this book is a must-read and many rereads for both web and graphic designers as well as anyone who cares about legibility and readability.
