There is a song in this: Let’s talk about line length, baby, let’s talk about you and me, let’s talk about…column width, baby… and mmm something something mm mmmm
all the good things and the bad things there can be.
You feeling me, Orbi?

I love this project. But let’s talk about sex, salt, and pepper.
Let’s effing talk about type!

I remember we discussed this project, but a friend of mine (MCAD whiz kid Tamara McCoy) pointed me in the direction of this similar project:

I think the design is TRES fresh in comparison to the above. Not to dog their efforts, but, I can see what you are saying about unsexy type setting in the above example.

at first i was not sure if the printed blog was something that i could stand by. to me it sounded like another opportunity to take advantage of those who offer their creative minds to the world. the ability to view the content for free is great for the promotion of the blog, this is among many of the pro’s an con’s. yet by centralizing and selecting content, it’s institutionalized the essence of the blog, subsequently removing the blogs monetary strategy, replacing it with its own.

if approached for the submission of your articles, would you accept? it seems like the logical progression from alltop.

Internets in print, print in the internets. See Oliver Reichtenstein’s

Update: I notice the Printed Blog is open to suggestion and comments, plus, they invite any and all submissions. What will the masters who made The Manual think of this? See more of their expertise at Shakeup Media.
