David Berlow on Variable Fonts

David Berlow writes for TypeNetwork:

The web has changed the typographer’s role. Typographers no longer decide on typefaces, font sizes, line lengths, line spacing, or margins; they make suggestions via marks and instructions so that text can make those choices for itself, responding to the context of an unknown reader’s environment.

The entire mini web book is worth a read.
