The golden ratio for typography
At this moment, there is a mathematical symphony going-on on this page. A symphony that everyone perceives unconsciously. This symphony, also called “golden ratio” is deeply rooted in us, and can be found everywhere around us, in architecture, photography, painting and nature.
You would not expect typography and mathematics have anything to do with each other at first. But nothing is less true! Typography is a combination of artistic forms and mathematical relationships. Each section consists of three primary dimensions: font size, line height and line length. The correct ratio between these three makes text readable.
With Tangle library texts and documents can be created interactively. Tangle is developed by the brilliant Bret Vicro.
