Inscribing Web-Facing Parchment
On registering this blog, TO was interested to be able to select a template format that appeared (at least in its background) subtly reminiscent not only of the pre-web era, but perhaps even of the pre-paper era. Evocative of tradition, but neither bound nor chained to a library table. No need for electronic quill pens for inscription, either; a browser serves well. TO appreciates these contrasts and is pleased to post among them, but does not anticipate recourse to archaic fonts or engagement of manuscript illuminators to compound their effect.
