Reading Response 1/25

1. I found the guidelines on leading helpful. That’s an area in typography I was alway unsure of. Paragraph leading should depend on the x-height of the typeface, type size and the width of the paragraph. I also found the notes on paragraph separation interesting. I have never tried a hanging indent before, so that might be interesting to play out.

2. Chapter 6 has several numbers, one set of parenthesis, several quotation marks, question marks and exclamation points. It also contains a lot of hyphens, em dashes and en dashes.

3. I’d like to work on achieving good rhythm and regularity on ragged paragraphs. I struggled a lot with that in my last internship. It’s also nice to hear that some hyphenated lines are allowed, I have always tried to entirely avoid them just because it was a designer rule.
