Great images, but the story seems almost exactly the same as the award-winning book “No, David!”
Is it just me, or is this far more color than Subtraction has ever seen?
Also, aren’t you only supposed to put spaces between em dashes in Canada? I’m inclined to trust Khoi on this one.
James: Haha, great call. You’re right, em dashes should not have a space before and after them. That’s a slight style cheat that I use in order to prevent an em dash tying together two long words, thereby creating really bad line breaks. Typography on the Web stinks.
Ahh, interesting trick.
Typography using movable type stunk too, then 400 years go by and it gets pretty good.
Here’s to hoping the advancements in the digital age go a little quicker!
awesome. well done.
Thank you! Your remarks have been sent to Khoi.
