there’s artsy and there’s fartsy

Monday. 07. 27. 2009.

My Gordon Ramsay cookbook came in the mail today. I got it from eBay for £1.20.

Looks pretty.

I’ve only flipped through the book.

Unfortunately, pretty doesn’t mean functional.

Different font size, types and colours. Very distracting.

When I’m using a cookbook, I want to be able to focus on the recipe.

Yellow on yellow is about as good as Dark Throne’s black on black.

The yellow words may look clear in the bright light of the flash but in regular light, it’s pretty hard to see. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one.

I’d like to know who designed the layout of this book.
