Readying for Reading: Blogs/Typographica

Going through the archives at Typographica has taken me much longer than I had anticipated. First, it took me over a week and some explicit instructions from Prateek to find the previous/next links on their website. Then, I fell ill, thanks to the rains in Bombay and the temperature drop in Bangalore, and was almost admitted to a hospital (I ran away refusing to be admitted, but that is another story).

A lot of articles on Typographica are introductions to essays or articles or books elsewhere, and that made it harder for me to go through everything. There is also a lot of short snippets, and responses to articles elsewhere (like this one on Gill Sans). Sadly, I feel quite sure that there is something relevant/interesting/useful that I have missed out.
