New Banner

27 Feb 2011

As you may have noticed, I’ve created a new baner for the top of the site. It’s the first to contain neither the colour yellow or the letter ρ. I put it together in LibreOffice Writer, using FontArt (their version of MS Word’s WordArt). Hardly the ideal tool for the job, but none of the image editing tools I tried allow you to expand text in both dimensions to fill an arbitrary rectangle.The font, in case you’re interested, is Monotype Baskerville (as included in Mac OS X), a typeface with a long and interesting history.
