Folks who have asked about the new body text typeface of Lucire can have their queries answered now: it is Slabb, designed by Kris Sowersby. I issued a release on it to some media yesterday and a longer one, which I would like Kris to OK ﬁrst, will go out in the next day or so.
I believe this makes Lucire the ﬁrst consumer publication in history to have all-New Zealand-designed fonts. And why not? Rolling Stone goes all-American, as do Time and Newsweek. Of course, much of the lack of typopatriotism here stems from the fact that so many of our print publications are owned by foreigners. Posted by Jack Yan, 21:58

NoteEntries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
