Reading – what you want read

should be readable.  


All museum labels should be readable at the ideal distance needed to see the work properly and read the text at the same time. Paradoxically larger type sizes often reduce visual conflict with the objects, as the visitors move further away, leaving clearer sightlines. Small texts, especially those placed low, signal an ignorance of ergonomics and a lack of respect for the visitor. Texts should also be clearly understandable. To write clearly and intelligently, to provide basic information to those who need it in a way they can read it, is not dumbing down, nor does public appeal mean an exhibition is less intelligent.
