Spacing helps readers more than big fonts

Tons of space: kite surfing in Tokelau.

New York researchers have found a key factor in whether we recognise objects.

It's not their size but their distance from other objects.

Because objects include letters, designers of font, books and documents will have a field day with this information.

Old truths will hold firm, however. This was always true and always will be:

If you can't squeeze text into the allotted space, cut the text, not the space.
