Amazon's Bookerly font arrives on E Ink Kindles

Kindle update in progress

As of this morning, Amazon’s new Kindle typeface Bookerly has made it to the E Ink Kindles – well, the most recent ones, anyway:

The current supported list is:

If Amazon sticks to form, updates for (some) older devices will emerge over the next few months.I imagine that the over-the-air update will make its way to devices over the next month, but I grabbed the direct download and installed in on my Voyage straight away.

At this point, I really don’t have much to add beyond the comments I made months ago when Bookerly hit my Kindle Fire. I like it, it’s an improvement on what they had before, and coupled with the other typographic changes, it’s a big step in the right direction with the software on these devices.

I have two 13 hour flights coming up over the next 10 days, so that’ll be the perfect opportunity to test how good the typeface is for extended use.
