Hello, everyone. This is my first post, but
I thought I would kick off with something
that I'm sure everyone has an opinion on.
I'm investgating type spaces for my MA, in
particular the idea that longer lines of
type need a bigger wordspace. Erik Spiekermann
advances this idea in 'Stop Stealing Sheep',
but doesn't really give a reason to back it
up. I feel as if it ought to be true, and can
see it on a visceral level, but I wondered
if anyone had any empirical evidence or
reasons to support
