Malabar eText is an adaption of the Malabar typeface for eReading devices and other screen-based reading environments.

A clear and enjoyable reading experience hinges on the legibility of text copy, especially when reading on screen. This is why Monotype has developed the eText collection of fonts specifically tailored for the text-heavy display environments of e-readers, tablets, mobile devices, and the Web.

Malabar® eText is a special version of the Malabar typeface. It has fewer weights, but the weights are better hinted. The fonts also include Cyrillic and Greek characters, which the other Malabar fonts do not. Malabar’s eText version first appeared on the nook Simple Touch reader. This reader used an eInk screen.

Malabar is a trademark of Monotype GmbH registered in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and may be registered in certain other jurisdictions.

Every typeface has its own inherent rhythm, created by the designer who made the font. With typefaces that are intended for use in body text, it is primarily this rhythm that will make the typeface readable. But there are additional factors that go into the making of a good text face: the space between the letters, the degree of contrast in the letters’ strokes, as well as the x-height and relative size of the whitespace inside of the letters. Not every typeface that works well in text will apply all of these factors in the same way, but all good ones will have many of these features in common. 1234567890
