your turn #3

The madness of Michael Mapes, via koikoikoi

Dear class, there's plenty to talk about.

What excites your fancy?

Garamond (hope you remember my board quick notes) maps, infamous books, Bodoni, L'Encyclopedie, newspapers (are they really "dying" or judst "morphing"?), Baskerville (and the design of "The Declaration"), Caslon, etc.

Nota bene: If I can ask something from the class is to try to be less casual about your comments and try to really ponder design in a deliberate manner.
