Before I read the article to colour my views, I would've thought that imaginative fonts are ok in notes or presentations as they can and will attract your attention. But for a manual or book, I think it might lead to eye fatigue and brain overload. I'll go away and let the academics prove me wrong when I read the article.

If this is true, does it follow that a choppy, idiosyncratic writing style works better than something fluent and understated?
