A new look

I've refreshed the look of my blog and homepage. For those who like fonts, I have adopted PMN Caecilia as my house font now. It is a great slab serif, a readable workhorse with a range of weights that make it effective for both titles and body copy. It is comfortable but with a few elegant flairs. Unfortunately I can't use it for body copy on the web, which has a limited supply of fonts, but I have been using it for body copy in letters and an upcoming book. I also considered Archer from Hoefler & Frere-Jones, but I found the ball terminals a bit too overpowering in body copy. See this history of slab serifs.
