Interesting look at the aesthetics of distraction-free reading, particularly on the web.

I admit I have a collection of screenshots of badly designed mobile sites. These are the ones with so many fixes headers and footers and share buttons and advertising that the actual content itself turns into nothing but a tiny band in the middle (and heaven forbid you don’t swipe down exactly horizontally, lest you find yourself paginating to the next article by mistake). All I can say is thank the webdesign gods for integrated Readability.
