I'm rebuilding this site right now. So a lot of things may look broken. But what better motivation for me to finish it?

8pt: brevier or small text
9pt: bourgeois or galliard
10pt: long primer or garamond
11pt: small pica or philosophy
12pt: pica
14pt: english or augustin
18pt: great primer
21pt: double small pica or double pica
24pt: double pica or two-line pica
36pt: double great primer or 2-line great primer
