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, Fontleroy Brown NF by Nick Curtis. Using the pair of fonts together was inspired by the glorious typography of The New Yorker.

  • The monospace text is Fantasque Sans Mono by Jany Belluz from the Open Font Library1 which was recommended to me via Twitter:

    I think it's rather cool and, as Matthew said, 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 Fenix.

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.

It's been one of those weeks. It started with us noticing that the central heating pump was running even when both hot water and central heating were off. So I phoned our tame plumber ... who was in Germany. But luckily he was about to fly home so he promised he'd pop around.  read more ...
