    Cover design by Keenan, using AF Carplates, ACME’s digital interpretation of the UK registration plates, and a photograph by Gabrielle Revere / Getty Images.

    The interior was designed by Iris Weinstein and is typeset in Bembo Infant. That’s a typeface I have yet come to terms with. Just like books that uses the long s (ſ) can take on a lisping “voice”, Bembo Infant’s monocular ‘a’ seems to tease me on every line: “You say tomato, I say tomoto.”

    Published by Vintage Books in 2006.

      Using Plantin Infant for body text is like somebody accidentally left the stylistic alternate option on in InDesign’s OT palette and it makes me want to punch myself every two paragraphs.
