Type Spacing (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Type Spacing To make the printed page as effective as possible, by the simplest possible means, is perhaps the clearest statement that we can make of the whole function of typographical. For its accomplishment there must be a technique of typography, clearly distinguished from the merely mechanical operations of typesetting. All the particulars of this technique may be summed up in the one all-inclusive word Spacing, since, broadly speaking, type cannot be set without being spaced. But the spacing of type, in so far as it relates to effectiveness in typographic arrangement, means more than simply putting type into a stick. It means space adjustment, whether in the layout, on the galley, or in the proof. It means the orderly contrasting of white with black space for the sake of legibility, decorative quality, and "attention value." It means making distinctions, as for example between the use of the four-and the five-em space, the one-and the two-point lead, between letter-spacing and no letter-spacing, between setting flush and indenting. In short it means knowledge and application of all the little touches which the eye of the trained typographer notes as essential to perfect, or at least excellent, work.
