Sundén, Karin: The typography of Swedish novels, 1742-1914

The typography of 53 novels printed in Sweden are analyzed according to technical parameters, such as type and body size, line length etc., title arrangement and use of ornaments. It is observed that 18th century editions, still mostly set in Gothic type, have rather crammed pages, while books at the beginning of the 19th century have fewer and shorter lines and large spaces between words. Mid-century title-pages abound in different type faces. If the 1860s and '70s have dull design, longer lines and close-set pages, the following decades show more care and spacious composition. Details as initials and indentions are obviousley subject to changing fashions. Overall causes of typographical change - economy, education, technology? - are still to be investigated.
