#361: Serif-Spotting on the Spanish Steps

Piazza di Spagna, Rome, Italy

If you think this #361 looks good now, try looking at it from the Spanish Steps in Rome while eating a coconut and pistachio gelato, channeling Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday. Some covetous window-shopping at Salvatore Ferragamo on the Via Condotti afterward and an artery-boosting espresso at La Casa del Caffe Tazza d'Oro and I was officially ready to be swept up by the bliss police. If you're not won over by either glamorous context or a well-tempered serif (shame on you), that charming caret-shaped period at the end of the 1 ought to make you swoon. If not, check for pulse.

mmmmm. This is a pretty one. And on a side note- I love the new titles that go along with the numbers!

It's fun, isn't it? Kind of like making up song or album titles without having to write the song. My head is full of titles. Next I should write a blog that's nothing but titles.

I am very partial to the caret-period.

And titles are an art-form which, unfortunately, many people do not even see.

Julie - I think you will like #355.
