Ten Keys to Seamless Typesetting

1. Old-style figures

In order to guarantee a seamless reading experience, classic typographically correct old-style figures are employed.

4. True Small Caps

When relevant, we always choose to use a typeface with true small caps, never faux caps.

7. Optical Margin Alignment

In order to maintain a visually straight right margin, the manuscript is typeset using optical margin alignment

10. Scripting

By using a variety of commercial scripts and plug-ins, alongside our own customised tools, we guarantee a fast turn around and consistently superior results.

2. Ligatures

Most serif fonts come with fi and fl ligatures as standard, but for truly smooth reading, we take into consideration additional letter combinations that other typesetters may brush aside.

5. True Superiors

Rather than simply using anaemic superscript characters, we methodically select fonts that have true superiors drawn. This is especially important for books that include note references.

8. Multilingual work

We choose typefaces according to any specialized sorts that are required. In addition to this, we also have expertise in Biblical Hebrew typography.

3. Consistent Kerning

We take care of adjusting kerning pairs whenever necessary, particularly between roman/italic letter combinations

6. Optical Sizes

When choosing the ideal font for a manuscript that includes footnotes, we mindfully pick a typeface with an optical weight for smaller text to maintain the aesthetics of the page.

9. PDF workflow

We use specialised automated software to make the process of inputting corrections exceptionally efficient and accurate.
