Do serifs, sans serifs, glyphs, ligatures, leading, tracking, kerning make any sense to you? If you’re also as confused as I am, you just reached the right place.  I have attempted to condense some of the information relating to Typography into a single page document, that can be used as a ready-reckoner for newbie Typographers. I am posting version 1.0 of this project on my blog.

The PDF file is here.

What’s even better is that I’ve even mapped these terms to the features in Adobe Illustrator, so that you can apply this information right away!

Take a print, Save the PDF, Share it with your friends. Feel free to use it whichever way you want. If this really helps you, share your experience with us.

Can you help me make this better. Let me know how. Post a comment.
