Gong show—Type slowly—Museum pieces

What happened to Eddie Gong? Find out here.

Slate asks writers about their favorite fonts. Most seem to like Courier (which I pretty much never use—too ugly!). (Via Jenny D)

Andrew Vachss says:

I write everything in Courier 12, because I write for publication, not pleasure.

Hmm. We like Luc Sante's take on Courier New better:

I . . . like the fact that in Courier each letter is accorded the exact same amount of space, which I think is only fair to the i and the l.

Speaking of Sante—his mysterious exhibit, The Museum of Crime and The Museum of God, is worth checking out.

Ed, dont despair--it appears that it wasm Andrew Vachss who made that remark, not N.B. Which makes some sense I think.

Funny! I was just going to comment "Have you ever read Andrew Vachss?!?" (I have, all of his books, they're addictive but very creepy...); I see the remark makes more sense if it referred to Ed's beloved NB... There either is or should be such a thing as a Palimpsest add-on for Blogger!
