New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I recently bought a small(A6)book, a short story by Mark Twain, and the text in it was unjustified(flush left, ragged right), I'm a recent graduate (read a designer without much experience) and I was wondering why someone would make a decision to do that? and why more people don't, is it easier to read? (it didnt really make a difference to me) I know Jan Tschichold talked about this in 'the new typography' but i cant remember his thoughts regarding book design, I've seen it done in small brouchures for museums but never for a whole book.
