About the Author

Sofie Beier is a type designer and associate professor employed at the School of Design under The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, where she is the head of the MA programme in Type & Wayfinding. She holds a PhD from the Royal College of Art in London. Her research is focused on improving the reading experience by achieving a better understanding of how different typefaces and letter shapes can influence the way we read. Several of her typefaces have been published through Gestalten Fonts, among these the Karlo and the Ovink families.


"It gathers a lot of resources that I haven't seen in print before - certainly not in a single volume. It's as useful to typographers as it is to type designers and it will help any font user be more informed about how they select and set type." - Stephen Coles - "Rather than infallible recipes, the book offers a series of considerations and assessments, helped by academic resources and practical examples, all carefully illustrated. Big names (Gerard Unger, Matthew Carter) sit alongside little-known studies such as Frank E. Blokland's research on `patternisation' of type design." - Sebastien Morlighem - Eye "A comprehensive review of what we know about reading and legibility and how they relate to letterforms. I am a huge fan of this book and Sofie's work." - Thomas Phinney
