Kerning is the process of adjusting the space between individual characters in a piece of text to improve its readability and visual appeal.

Proper kerning ensures that the spacing appears consistent to the reader, preventing awkward gaps or overlaps.

In typography, it plays a critical role in making sure that the text is not only legible but also aesthetically pleasing, enhancing the overall effectiveness of the printed material.
