Cool, wonderful weekend.
Bought a new book, called Goodbye Gutenberg about using color and design and typography as a teaching tool, and as a way of breaking free from traditional Gutenberg-style typesetting. It’s beautiful and elegant — but the text is crappy, and it doesn’t contain very many actual examples that one could use immediately. Her Raven and other colorized Edgar Allen Poe pieces are cool-looking, and I can see them making a great hit in class. So is her Canterbury Tales. But it doesn’t change the fact that most of her pages are beautiful, but that they distract from the text itself.
Doing testing at school all morning. More later.
