Introducing OpenDyslexic Font

In the fall of 2013, Quarter Castle Publishing introduced their first books featuring OpenDyslexic font: City of Light and Shadow by Sheila McDougall and Nova Scotia – Life Near Water by Diane Lynn McGyver. 2014 will see additional titles—including books for children—appear as we test-drive this innovative font geared towards helping those with reading disorders read easier.

OpenDyslexic is a font created by Abelardo Gonzalez to increase readability for readers with dyslexia. It is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License. To learn more about this special font or to download it for free, visit the website.

Quarter Castle Publishing is dedicated to meeting the demands of readers. One way we’re doing this is by creating a selection of material using the special typeface OpenDyslexic. We hope it will make reading easier and more enjoyable for individuals who have developmental reading disorder (DRD or Dyslexia).

Look for the dLex symbol on the back as more titles are created with OpenDyslexic!
