I personally prefer all antialiasing off (especially subpixel, which looks good at first but feels fatiguing to read and eventually causes tears and headache), and found the fixed-width bitmap font he uses to caption the images the most readable of all --- it appears to be one of my favourite fonts, the X Fixed family: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fixed_(typeface)



misc-fixed are really great fonts (I wish they handled devanagari/indic scripts - that unfortunately seems unlikely to happen: https://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/ucs-fonts.html , though some of them do handle other abugidas like ge'ez/ethiopic)
