Amazon Kindle eBook Reader Font


Stephen Levy's huge profile of the Amazon Kindle eBook reader in Newsweek may not include an image of the device, but it did give us one clue as to its appearance: it's default font, a serifed face from Linotype, called "Caecilia."

The rest of the article is worth a read if you're into the eBook concept, and outlines the basics of the Kindle program, confirming that the devices will cost $400, have EV-DO radios built-in for over-the-air eBook purchases, and will have at least some sort of PDF support. (The real question, as always, is if the device will also display plaintext files; we'll find out soon, I'm sure.)

Book prices vary, but examples are given from $2 for classics to $10 to just-published works.
