Abstract:


    Description
    Typography is the art of arranging type to make written language legible, readable, and appealing when displayed.

    However, for the neophyte, typography is mostly apprehended as the juxtaposition of charactrers displayed on the screen while for the expert, typography means typeface, scripts, unicode, glyphs, shaping, weight, slant, etc.

    Typography is actually much more than the mere rendering of glyphs and involves many different concepts.
