Blogosphere

Unless you are a total typography geek, you might not have noticed a change in this blog’s type today.

Because of some behind-the-scenes changes at WordPress.com, I needed to change font this blog uses for its title, its post titles, and its headings. The old font was called Jubilat, and the new font is called Domine.

Jubilat
Domine
Jubilat
Domine

As you can see, these two typefaces look similar, but aren’t exactly the same. I prefer Jubilat slightly — each letter is slightly wider, and the native kerning is tighter. I might be able to tighten the kerning a little and will play with it when I find some time. Given that Jubilat is not an option anymore, Domine is a reasonable replacement.
