comment Can the end of double spacing after periods be dated?
Some of the absolutes about the "one space rule" are not as absolute as you - and many - think. The practice of additional spacing after a paragraph is not something that originated with the typewriter, it dates back a long time before that. Single spacing as a "rule" is relatively modern. Moreover there is an important distinction between double spacing by pressing space twice, or additional spacing that is added during typesetting when a space appears after the end of a sentence - many don't consider the two as distinct. The link in the above comment is a good start.

comment Is this a photo or 3D render, and how would I give a photo a similar effect?
@4thSpace well clearly the 3D rendering has also had a bloom effect applied which is why I mentioned it. You could certainly get a similar effect on a photo, yes. You probably want the "hard light" variant or a combination of mostly "hard light", some "soft light".

Great 3D work there. Note however that just because this is a 3D render doesn't mean you can't get the exact same colour treatment with a photo. As Marc's answer reveals, a gradient map is just one way of going about this (I'd wanna give it a bit more saturation there Marc). Plus you'll wanna give it some bloom.

Serif Gothic actually looks very similar apart from the stroke emphasis! Mind if I put it in my answer?

comment What fonts are ideal for E-ink displays?
Good point. The Kindle (and most 6" e-readers), despite having a low pixel dimension, has a ppi of 167 which is higher than most desktops and many laptops, and higher than the original (pre-retina) iPad.

comment What fonts are ideal for E-ink displays?
It's also lower resolution than most LCD screens too. Typical e-reader (eg. Kindle) resolution is 800x600 pixels. So basically any font that's designed to be readable at small sizes will do. E-readers tend to have very good anti-aliasing and therefore render fonts quite shape-accurate, rather than relying on hinting like for example Windows.
