Typography Sites and Articles

By Judy Vorfeld


Wikipedia says that typog­ra­phy is the art and tech­nique of arrang­ing type in order to make lan­guage vis­i­ble. The arrange­ment of type involves the selec­tion of type­faces, point size, line length, lead­ing (line spac­ing), adjust­ing the spaces between groups of let­ters (track­ing) and adjust­ing the space between pairs of let­ters (kerning).

At dif­fer­ent times in our cul­ture, a select few had expe­ri­ence and infor­ma­tion regard­ing typog­ra­phy, but when com­put­ers came along, text typog­ra­phy (at the least) became avail­able for almost every­one. In a sense, we can print with type. We can cre­ate. We can use our imag­i­na­tions. We can take soft­ware like WordPress, which I’m using on this site, and be creative.

Following are a few of the sites that talk about the many faces of typography.
