I’m still trying to figure out this link-posting thing, so please excuse me if you see more than one link post today. I should hopefully have it figured out by tomorrow.
“Ecofont uses 20% less ink than normal fonts by putting small holes in the letters. At large sizes these holes are obvious, but at normal sizes it’s hardly noticeable.”
“I get the sense from some designers (and some readers), that since eBooks can’t be controlled in the same way as print and paper books, somehow they are inferior – and that people just won’t be attached to them, drawn into them in the same way as they are with “real” books. To which my reaction is: eBooks, and digital devices are a different medium, they call for a whole new design approach. The constraints are different, the reader’s needs different, and so how you’ll design a text is going to be different.”
