The FontFeed: What the iPad Is Missing


4 of 5 stars
What’s this?

Type guru Stephen Coles presents a surprisingly extensive case against Apple’s putative attention to typographic high standards across its various products, with special focus on the iPad’s disappointments in this realm.

“A device designed for media consumption could validate Apple’s dedication to design by emphasizing design’s most basic element: typography. But so far, it flops.”

I touched on this briefly in my new column in Print Magazine, but this is a much more thorough indictment of the Cupertino company’s apparent willingness to rest on its typographic laurels. Read all eight of Cole’s complaints here.
