Spring styles

September 28, 2019

A new season, a new typeface for the headings on this site.

It's Fedoro, a to my eye rather pleasingly Art Deco looking thing that I found lying in bed with the flu listening to podcasts. Dana Gould's podcast in particular, the latest one in which he talks with Pleasant Gehman. Naturally I wandered over to her site & that's where I fell in love with Fedoro.

The title of this post is a nod to another of my disjointed interests. I used to use a bit of software to play at designing ships, called Springstyle. It wasn't until years later that I learned where its name came from. The US Navy in the early Twentieth Century called its annual collection of ship designs "after the term for ladies' fashion catalogs" (thank you Wikipedia).

So typefaces, Deco, the LA punk scene in the 70s on a podcast I mostly listen to for the old Hollywood bits, a bit of nautical engineering trivia, and of course ladies' fashion. Life, in all its diversity.
