Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is an image format, so text isn’t the first thing you might think of when considering its uses. But one of SVG’s key features is its ability to encode text in a machine-readable form. This book takes a deep dive into the use of text within SVG to explore the creative possibilities as well as the potential pitfalls. You’ll start with SVG’s text basics, and then learn methods for using SVG to generate complex layouts.

If you’re an intermediate SVG developer familiar with CSS-styled HTML text, you’re ready to get going. This book covers:

  • The SVG text and tspan elements, and basic attributes for positioning simple text labels within a graphic
  • SVG’s fill and stroke properties for controlling text’s visual appearance
  • Complex text layouts, using formatted poetry as examples
  • Features to set the position and orientation of individual text characters
  • Multidirectional text, including right-to-left horizontal text and vertical text
  • Curved or complex text layouts with the textPath element
  • Font options for your SVG, including web fonts, and their impact on text layout

About the Author:

Amelia Bellamy-Royds is a freelance writer specializing in scientific and technical communication. She helps promote web standards and design through participation in online communities such as Web Platform Docs, Stack Exchange and Codepen. Her interest in SVG stems from work in data visualization, and builds upon the programming fundamentals she learned while earning a B.Sc. in bioinformatics. A policy research job for the Canadian Library of Parliament convinced her that she was more interested in discussing the big-picture applications of scientific research than doing the laboratory work herself, leading to graduate studies in journalism. She currently lives in Edmonton, Alberta. If she isn't at a computer, she's probably digging in her vegetable garden or out enjoying live music.

Kurt Cagle worked as a member of the SVG Working Group, and wrote one of the first SVG books on the market in 2004. Currently an Invited Expert with the W3C Xforms working group, Kurt Cagle is also XML Data Architect for the Library of Congress, after having worked in that role for the US National Archives. He was a regular contributor to O'Reilly Media since 2003, and an online editor in 2008-2009.
