I’m writing a paper that includes a section on word shape recognition in reading. Does anyone know any good readability readings that deal with this? Thanks.

OH yeah.
But most of it is very vague. The only guy who’s
addressed it directly/scientifically that I know of
is Dutch psychologist Herman Bouma. Although he
hasn’t written a book, he has written a number of
articles/papers which should be available through
a good university library, or at least through ILL.

And if you don’t mind referring to a
disreputable source you could check out
my piece in “Graphic Design & Reading”:
