Just step away from the font, sir.

It may sound dramatic, it may sound unimportant. But it is not. Do not use these fonts, ever, for any reason. Why? Because they offend the laws of design. I'm not going to explain any further; it's like having to explain why something's funny to someone with no sense of humour. Just... don't... do it. Please. //update - I've had to move the picture of the first offending font below the cut because I can't bear to have it on the blog.// gigi.jpg pap.jpg monotype.jpg comic.jpg


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
