Summary

1. The stress placed upon type face in discussions of typographical factors influencing speed of reading, and the failure of any previous investigator to study the question under ordinary reading conditions led to the present study.

2. Ten type faces were compared with respect to their effect on reading rate. Ten groups of 90 college students were tested—a total of 900 subjects.

3. No important differences in rate of reading text material were found when the following type faces were
used: Scotch Roman; Garamont; Antique; Bodoni; Old Style; Caslon 0. S.; Kabel lite; and Cheltenham.

4. Text printed with American Typewriter type was read 5.1 per cent more slowly than text printed with
Scotch Roman type.

5. Cloister Black type (Old English) retards speed of reading 16.5 per cent.

6. Type faces in common use are equally legible.
