Colophon

“Colophon” comes from the Greek word “κολοφων” or "kolophon," which means "summit" or "finishing touch."

It is a description of the details and methods behind a publication and is often found on the last few pages of books.

Typography

This site uses Adobe Typekit for beautiful, readable type. 

Futura PT is a sans serif face based on geometrical shapes, representative of the aesthetics of the Bauhaus school of the 1920s-30s. Future PT was created by ParaType, established as a font department of ParaGraph International in 1989 in Moscow, Russia. ParaType pays particular attention to screen quality of its fonts. Most ParaType fonts are hinted manually and many of them are even delta hinted.

Adelle is a slab serif typeface conceived specifically for intensive editorial use, mainly in newspapers and magazines. The unobtrusive appearance, excellent texture and slightly dark color allow it to behave flawlessly in continuous text setting, even in the most demanding editorial applications. Its energetic character, so inherent to slab serif fonts, becomes evident as the typeface is used for subheadings and headlines. It was created by TypeTogether, an independent type foundry leaded by Veronika Burian and José Scaglione in 2006.
