The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

31 January 2008

268

This week's Carnival of the Vanities is dubbed "into Feb.", which makes sense for a compilation created at the very end of January.

Inasmuch as the Carnival is always presented in text form, this seems like a good time to honor Giambattista Bodoni, creator of the typeface that bears his name, who was born in February 1740 — 268 years ago.
