Fonts and Page Sizes

The choice of font is highly personal: it is important to select simple styled clear fonts. Thus gothic styles are complex iterative styles and are hard to read on screen when the light conditions / contrast cannot be optimised.

The iPad offers five fonts:

  • Baskerville
  • Cochin
  • Palatino
  • Times New Roman
  • Verdana

Other good clear fonts could include:

  • Janson
  • Goramand
  • Bodini
  • Tahoma
  • Calibri
