Typography comes from the Greek words τύπος typos "mark, figure" and γράφω grapho "I write".

Different periodical publications design their publications, including their typography, to achieve a particular tone or style. For example, USAToday uses a bold, colorful, and comparatively modern style through their use of a variety of typefaces and colors; type sizes vary widely, and the newspaper's name is placed on a colored background. In contrast, the New York Times use a more traditional approach, with fewer colors, less typeface variation, and more columns.


Typography is the art and technique of arranging type in order to make language visible.
