Abstract
Over several hundred years of refinement, the graphic arts industry has become skilled in producing images, in the form of printed pages, that maximize both esthetics and information content. Skills of graphic arts practitioners include typeface design; selection of proper combinations of typefaces with proper character spacing for maximum readability; balancing of page components and layout for best economical information transfer; and optimizing picture reproduction techniques consistent with mechanical printing processes.
