(Note: The term font is often used incorrectly as a synonym for typeface.)The typeface for the body text of this book is ITC Garamond Light, and Frutiger is used for the chapter titles, heads, and subheads.There are 2 common forms of typeface: serif and sans serif (Figure ). Serif typefaces (eg, Times Roman) have a short, light line (serif)
