Magazine Article

I made an experiment that has the whole article set in a font called Marlet. I did this becasue I was sick of making endless tweaks to my real layout and it was driving me crazy. It’s not even really a font it is just a collection of shapes . . . it looks funny. I’m not really sure if this is allowed because the reader would actually have no idea what the article was about, infact I don’t think they would be aware that they were looking at an article at all, it’s merely a selection of shapes. It breaks the constraining boundries of legibility and pisses all over it before setting it on fire, freeing the reader to see exactly what they do or do not want to see in this article.

In your face Beatrice Warde.

P.S. I’m sure Beatrice Warde was a very clever person with some very good ideas, but I just HATE ‘The Crystal Goblet, or Printing Should Be Invisible’.
