The design of this blog is quite deliberate. Typography is something that interests me, and I did have in mind, when selecting and customizing the theme, that it should be simple, uncluttered, and readable. For example, it isn’t accidental that the footnotes are a contrasting, sans-serif font. The line-length on this blog should vary from about sixty to seventy characters, which should approach optimal readability. It should be a very crisp black-on-white. Nevertheless, I have come to the conclusion that that justified type is marginally less easy to follow than left-aligned text, so I have changed the stylesheet accordingly.
