Joke’s On Me

The PDFs of my Fortress Press book arrived yesterday, and I take bemused delight in one of its features. In a book which includes at least two essays that broach the topic of how typography affects interpretation, Fortress has set the headers in Antique Olive, one of my very least favorite typefaces in the world. At least the body copy is set in a sturdy Janson-family typeface.

In other news, I seem to have succumbed to the cold Pippa developed two days ago. She has seemed pitiably uncomfortable since then, so I’m not looking forward to the rest of the week.

  1. I’ve had a cold for several days, too, since Sage was kind enough to share hers. Is anything more frustrating than enduring two weeks of rain and cold weather only to catch cold on the first sunny day in ages?

  2. Yes, Steve,
    A new cold when one is trying to be disciplined and needs to be productive on one’s dissertation. I got my cold two days ago two. I wonder if someone at that restaurant gave it to us?

  3. You win, Trevor, though I’m sure you’d rather lose in this case. I’m only trying to be disciplined enough to write the first draft of a novel, and unlike a dissertation no one but me actually cares whether I do it. (Making the siren call of World Cup coverage all the more alluring…)
