Typography refers to the style and appearance of a written language, and/or the art and study of arranging and displaying a written language.
Let me just say (from the perspective of not being an artist) that typography is truly is an art-form that can add to or subtract from just about every language I’ve ever run across.
In this digital age, typography relies very heavily upon the usage of one main component: font.
Font is the graphical representation of text. Each font is a set of characters in a specific style, typeface, or design.
