Abstract:

The legibility of geographic names is determined not only by the choice of the script style and the size, slant and thickness of the script used, but is to a considerable extent made easier or more difficult also by the position of the name with respect to the object it describes, whenever the particular place name is printed in a careless fashion and in violation of the law of inscription arrangement.
