The Qualities Of Legibility

A book which I designed for my written thesis. The key part of my thesis is the comparison of the parameters of legibility in both English and Chinese. In order to communicate the core ideas of my writing, I applied the two most distinctive fonts–Helvetica and Garamond, to differentiate between the writing about Chinese and the writing about English. It is also a challenge to set two fonts which belong to two different classification harmoniously. I've also put a great deal of time into setting the type to be legible, yet the style of the book to still be very elegant. The outcome is tremendously successful, I'm very proud of it.
