courier

A few peoples may have notice a recent change to the font of my blog. That’s right, everything is now presented in the awesome style that is Courier. Courier is obviously the ultimate typeface, its monospaced (optimal and it look nice and neat too) with wonderful curved serifs that one hopes promotes ease of reading. This is a hopeless case of lifting from wiki but truely, as Kettner, the designer of Courier, says, and as I hope would to apply to my blog:

'a letter can be just an ordinary messenger, or it can be the courier, which radiates dignity, prestige, and stability.'

WINNER!

This typewriter font is also associated with good memories for me with regards to a game my sister and I used to play. She was by far the imaginative one and I used to coast along very happily on her imagincation. No doubt this contributes to my stagnated creativity. Anyway, it involved sending letters to each other and she spent many an hour clacking away on my mum's typewriter while I struck it out with old-fashion calligraphy (good point, time to unearth my pen from the dust). Coincidentally, the first Christmas presents my bf and I ever exchanged happened both to be calligraphy pens. XD.
