“Matter of opinion – about readability and the details in typography” is about analyzing the aspects of microtypography that affect the readability of printed text as well as the design possibilities that arise out of them. For this purpose, different theses from different designers are put in relation. Hence a grading system for ideal qualitative font selection – besides subjective or contextual circumstances – was developed. This thesis demonstrates that font selection alone is not what matters most for optimum reception of a text. Typography is a craft and requires knowledge, proficiency, sense and experience of its practitioners.
