ABOUT







Weight

A letter's relative amount of blackness. Proper terminology for weight has never been precisely determined. In types used for continuous reading, two weights are generally used the original design, called either regular or light, and a boldface. Square serif and sans serif types have as many as eight or nine different weights, differently described by each manufacturer. Most likely this imprecision can never be corrected. Today's digital typefaces may have weights that are characterized by the terms hairline, light, regular, medium, semibold, bold, ultrabold, black and heavy.
