An instrument for measuring type size and leading. Often it is a clear sheet of plastic with letters of different point sizes on it, which can be laid on top of a printed page to compare the letters on the page with standard size letters on the see-through gauge. A type gauge usually includes scales of inches, picas, and points for measuring type leading and distances between other design elements on the page. It may also have examples of lines and bullets in various point sizes.
