Colophon

Fonts

When selecting fonts for this website, I was looking to combine my love for 70’s psychedelia and gothic blackletter while keeping everything mostly legible and accessible.

Fonts used on this website:
Basteleur is used for the bigger titles
Cal Fraktur Modern is used for blackletter titles
Cooper Std is used for the second level of titles
Distro is used for the third level of titles
Wrenema is used for body text

If you’re into cool fonts look up this directory of open source fonts by womxn , this crazy foundry making free fonts , this directory of free to use and free to modify fonts and the download foundry making really experimental stuff. Last thing, here’s a cool site with all the unicode characters handy .

Technology

This website is basically a collection of html files in folders, generated by Hugo . It does not require javascript to run. The files are hosted on DigitalOcean and the domain on Gandi .

By default it loads low resolution dithered images to reduce the loading time and the bandwidth needed to view the website. A toggle on the top right allows to switch to high resolution images. This feature was based upon Nate Steiner’s imageswap .

If you’re interested in better markup and more accessible websites, go take a look at this little guide:
