The photo below is an example of “bad” letterspacing/kerning: “How to Draw Comics.” The type below provides an inappropriate amount of spacing within each letter. The letters are touching and overlapping each other. Although the style of the typography seems appropriate for the material in this book, the letters are extremely tight and compressed and could use letterspacing. The words would be completely illegible and lost without the dark black stroke and blue shadows.

I seen this sign while in the train. It does not show good letter spacing. In the word Brake, the letter “e” is very close to the letter “k”. Also there is very little space betweeen the words Emergency and Break compared to the spacing between the words bellow it.

The NYPD car is an example of good letter spacing. If u look at where it says NYPD, the spacing between the letters is perfect. The letters are all evenly apart from each other.

Good vs Bad Kerning/letterspacing

As I crossed the street I came upon a message on a piece of wood with bad kerning. The reason it is considered bad kerning is because the P and O in the word ‘POST’ seem to be right on top of each other, as well as the S and T are fusing together. Yet the O and S are not connecting in any way. Also the┬áI and┬áL in ‘BILLS’ have space to spare but the B is right on top of the I.
