Michael John Goodman’s digitized edition of William Morris’s Kelmscott Chaucer. I don’t know that I agree with the “most beautiful book ever produced” bit, but it’s certainly an interesting book, and nice to see another digitized version of it. The ornamentation on the page borders has given me some inspiration, too. (More to come on that later, if anything ever comes of it.)

Doug Wilson on Tobias Frere-Jones designing the Whitney typeface. I also enjoyed the posts about designing Archer and Surveyor.

The Judd Foundation library site. Wow. That’s amazing.

Gabarito, a nice, friendly (and newly open-sourced) geometric sans typeface. Seems like it would work well on a picture book.

Maya on dark mode in the ancient world (purple parchment, etc.), and “ancient” is used loosely here. Never seen any of these before, but wow, they’re fascinating.
