How to space typefaces  MAR 16 2002

Andy summarizes Walter Tracy on how to space typefaces: "...Tracy outlines a method for approaching one of the more difficult, crucial, and poorly-understood areas of type design: determining how letters in a typeface should be properly fitted. This page is an attempt to summarize Tracy's fitting procedure as described in the book. There are many ways to go about spacing typefaces and this isn't meant to be definitive. But gaining an understanding of the concepts in Tracy's method is certainly a good way to begin understanding what spacing involves."
