Links : Easier To Read?

Bradbury Thompson's Alphabet 26 : A Font System For Early Readers?
From AIGA. Written by Audrey Bennett and Bridget Rice. Published on December 20, 2005.

"Some might argue that the introduction of Alphabet 26 for early reading would be complicated to implement, extremely costly, or even that the degree of unfamiliarity would be too difficult a challenge. However, as Thompson once argued: all of the individual characters of the Alphabet 26 font have been in use through 500 years of printing. Therefore, through common usage, the Alphabet 26 font could easily be conceived as both easier to read and write and simpler to teach and typeset."
