Typography is the art and technique of arranging type to make written language legible, readable, and appealing when drawn, printed or displayed. The arrangement of type involves selecting typefaces, point size, line length, line-spacing (leading), letter-spacing (tracking), and adjusting the space within letters pairs (kerning). The term typography also is applied to the style, arrangement, and appearance of the letters, numbers, and symbols created by the process. The design of typefaces has developed alongside the development of typesetting systems. Although typography has evolved significantly from its origins, it is a largely conservative art that tends to cleave closely to tradition. This is because legibility is paramount, and so the typefaces that are the most readable usually are retained.
