Typography [ ti – pa – gra – fe ] NOUN is the art and technique of arranging type in order to make language visible.
The arrangement of type involves the selection of typefaces, point size, line length,
leading (line spacing), adjusting the spaces between groups of letters (tracking) and
adjusting the space between pairs of letters (kerning).
Type design is a closely related craft, which some consider distinct and
others a part of typography; most typographers do not design typefaces, and
some type designers do not consider themselves typographers.
In modern times, typography has been put into motion in film, television and
online broadcasts to add emotion to mass communication. - Wikipedia
