Font Comparisons

Click on image to watch animation

 

This animated image shows a variety of fonts displayed on the Kindle 2. Thees are actual photos taken of the screen. They have been normalized so that the background (white) is approximately the same brightness, as is the darkest, black. As such, the relative contrast closely approximates the actual display.

Depending on the size of your screen, the displayed images should be about the size and resolution of an actual Kindle screen.

The fonts are as follows (see attachments for individual images):

  • Image 1: Original, native Kindle 2 font
  • Image 2: Bold version of native Kindle 2 font.
  • Image 3: Same font as image 2, compressed slightly to give more words per line.
  • Image 4: A public domain serif font that has been modified to enhance the contrast for use on the Kindle 2.
  • Image 5: A sans-serif font, hand-adjusted for optimal contrast on the Kindle 2.
