Bookerly is a serif typeface designed by Dalton Maag as an exclusive font for reading on Amazon's Kindle devices. Combined with a new typesetting engine, Amazon.com asserts that the font helps the user "read faster with less eyestrain."[1] The font includes ligatures and kerning pairs. [2]

Bookerly replaces Caecilia as the default font for the 2015 Kindle Paperwhite (3rd generation) and it will be used as the default font on Amazon's future e-readers.[3] The Bookerly font was added to many of the older Kindle devices via firmware updates.[4]
