I am a publisher of regional books in France (for whom I also manage some sites, primarily using Divi). I always think it is a good idea to come back to the basics. There would be no web without books! And looking at examples of typography on a printed page is not the same experience as looking at them on a screen, both visually and mentally. I love web site design but I’m also keen on good book design, and the web can still learn a thing or two from books. I therefore really do appreciate the subject of this blog, which overlaps into numerous creative areas. A big thanks for pointing out all of these resources that I was unaware of.
text late 14c., "wording of anything written," from . texte, . tixte (12c.), from . textus "the Scriptures, text, treatise," in . "written account, content, characters used in a document," from L. textus "style or texture of a work," lit. "thing woven," from pp. stem of texere "to weave," from PIE base *tek- "make" (see texture)."An ancient metaphor: thought is a thread, and the raconteur is a spinner of yarns -- but the true storyteller, the poet, is a weaver. The scribes made this old and audible abstraction into a new and visible fact. After long practice, their work took on ... such an even, flexible texture that they called the written page a textus, which means cloth." [Robert Bringhurst, "The Elements of Typographic Style"]
