Current Book Tip
Serif fonts work well for text because they have a slight projection finishing off the stroke of a letter carrying your eye from one letter to the next. Sans serif fonts are popular for chapter titles and subheads. As I mentioned in my last tip, limit the number of typefaces used in your book. Generally speaking, stick to one typeface for the body text and one for the headers.
