Making an impression

It's hard to convey an impression here. The data compression necessary to produce image files that load quickly means a reduction in image quality - the exact opposite of what one wants! 

But I hope this image gives a feeling for the Octavian typeface I am using (despite the shallow depth of field of my digital camera). Octavian was designed for Monotype metal type by Will Carter and was only cut in this 14pt size. It has great character and strength and is just right to complement Kurt Feuerhem's vigorous illustrations in the book.
