5x12 pentomino tiling

Colophon

These pages use three free fonts:

  • The body text is in Lusitana by Ana Paula Megda from Google fonts and, unusually for me, is a serif font. I'm normally a sans fan but I fancied a change.

  • The main heading is another serif font, Alegreya SC, but it's a small caps. This is a follow up from my previous use of the New Yorker font.

  • The monospace text is Fantasque Sans Mono by Jany Belluz from the Open Font Library1 which was recommended to me by Matthew Bloch. I think it's rather cool and it has some nice little bits of loopy business on things like k and y which I like. It is coloured #006633 to make it stand out from the body text (although this is now less of an issue now that I'm using a serif font for body text) and scaled to 91% to make its height match with Lusitana.

The pentominoes page theme is my own design derived from a work on Wikipedia and is used under a Creative Commons licence.

  1. Although I'm now hosting the font files myself as their server seems to be permanently slashdotted which was making my page load times slow.
Wiblog:
Derek Wynde RIP

It's the funeral of my uncle Derek this afternoon. I confess I didn't know him that well - he only came on the scene quite late in the day so I didn't grow up with him around - but it would have been good to have been there for his funeral as he was married to Margaret, my youngest aunt of whom I'm very fond.  read more ...
