In the context of typography, spacing refers to the distribution of space between characters, words, or lines in a text.

It's an essential component of design and layout as it impacts readability and visual appeal. Proper spacing ensures the text is legible, and information is easily digestible.

Various aspects come under spacing, including kerning (space between individual letters), leading (space between lines), and tracking (uniform adjustment of space across a whole word).
