For a social network product from a company most famous for its search engine, G+ has rather lackluster search capabilities. As the good folks of the Internet have pointed out to me, whatever its merits are as a place to discuss and journal my design efforts, it is an unreliable archive. In the hopes of better preserving my progress on the #LincolnGreen game, every Wednesday I make a #Greenwoodnesday post on G+, I’ll re-post it here along with a companion post from the past (with some edits to update the design). Today, let’s stroll in the Greenwood back to September of 2015, wherein I stumble upon a mechanic found in the typesetting of Howard Pyle’s The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood:
Hey, it’s #Greenwoodnesday!
I have a version of Howard Pyles The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood much like the one pictured below. I’d like to do your eye a disservice here and draw it away from the gorgeous Pyle illustrations and towards that square of italicized text on the lower right. You probably cannot see it from here, but it’s a spoiler. The text is crammed full of them. Little notations on what is happening or just about to happen in the story.
