Typefaces are constructed an output by a new technolgy, the so-called fonttechnology. The book by Peter Karow covers the whole area of it. It offers various chapters about (among others) issues like intelligent font scaling, kerning, quality of type, legibility, and problems of different output devices.

Furthermore, Fonttechnology contains a number of valuable and instructive appendices. Almost everything one has to know about type and computers!
