Ellen Lupton is working on an expanded version of my favorite type book, Thinking With Type, to be released in 2010. Too bad 2010 is two whole years away, but at least I get to say “twenty-ten” in my head when I think about it, which still sounds very futuristic to me. Maybe I’ll travel to the book store on my hoverboard when the new version debuts.

As with list item bullets, it is traditional for opening quote marks to be placed in the left margin.
While avoiding a slowly encroaching abyss of unfinished homework, I finally got a chance to check out the slides from Jeff Croft’s presentation, “Typography: Beyond the Font,” (3MB PDF) from the 2007 Webmaster Jam Session, Dallas. For the most part, it was a great review of the principles I’ve learned over the past year, but I also picked up that new bit.
