In this chapter we learnt what CSS3 media queries are, how to use them to define and apply specific rules to determined breakpoints in our CSS.

We learnt of their applicability to type and how to set a limit to our typography scaling, both with a deciding viewport width – or a desired type size.

And lastly but not least, I gifted you with a useful table describing viewport sizes in combination with desired point sizes for optimal readability
