Kerntype was developed by Mark MacKay for Method of Action, a new educational website on design, entrepreneurship and gardening, created by himself and his wife. Nicely done!

    It is nicely done. I’m glad you told me about it – thanks. My take on kerning is sorta the obverse, though. When learning about type and learning to set metal type, I was given to understand that inter-letter spacing is about the relationships between pairs of letters (the rules and conventions of Letterforms), rather than by divvying up the voids between letters and counters. (When we moved to phototype, those conventions were, largely, preserved successfully by the makers of the tools and the letter pairs that “missed” could be kerned mechanically or with blade-and-pen-magic).
    Raise the bridge, lower the water . . . your choice.
    Still, I find *some* of the type coming out of the foundries today is very beautifully executed.
