ANTONY WOOD­WARD’S de­light­ful piece on type­faces (Oc­to­ber 19) omits to men­tion that the spac­ing of the text is equally as im­por­tant as the type­face used. Words have no mean­ing un­less they’re sep­a­rated from each other and grouped by in­ter­line spac­ing—the ver­sion of the Dec­la­ra­tion of In­de­pen­dence shown in Gara­mond is much less leg­i­ble than the pre­ced­ing ver­sions.

If read­ers ex­am­ine the pages of COUN­TRY LIFE, they will see that it is the spa­tial ar­range­ment of the type (and its size) that de­ter­mines leg­i­bil­ity as much as the type­face. James Hart­ley, Stafford­shire
