What is typography, exactly?

It is an art; a technique of representing and arranging words, using the best styles. It’s not only about selecting a font size, it’s more than that. Typography includes everything about fonts and their design; like the font size, the line length, the spacing between two letters and much more.

Why is it so important in today’s world?
