Change the Type in an iBook

One thing you can’t really do with a printed book is make the type size bigger or smaller to suit the needs of your eyes, not the book designer’s. And if you don’t care for a book’s typeface, you’re stuck with that, too—in a printed book, that is.

But not on the iPad. Thanks to the iBooks software, you can make book type bigger or smaller, or change the look altogether. Just tap the Type icon () at the top of the page. A box like the one shown below appears. Tap the little to make the text on-screen smaller, or tap the big to make it bigger. The size changes as you tap, so you can immediately see which works best for you. Hate reading on white pages? Tap the Sepia button to give the page a brownish tint.
