We founded this web journal back in Fall 2007, and the design was meant as a hedge on the entire idea of the “web”: What if we created a “blog” that looked like an early 20th century printed art journal?
This worked as a good foundation, but in the last few years, our publishing schedule has been more akin to a seasonal journal than a daily blog, and at the same time, the web has established itself so fully as a medium for publication that there is no longer good reason to hedge.
With this in mind today we have today finally launched our new updated look. We got rid of the sidebar navigations that no longer felt necessary and killed links to dead associated properties like Meta no Tame and Creation Centre. More importantly, we have implemented web fonts and optimized line lengths to foster greater readability. We also newly offer a mobile version of the site optimized for reading on modern smartphones. Big thanks to our developer Paul Sather for his work.
Honestly speaking, we are likely to continue being busy people and publishing less frequently than we desire, but we can promise that we have many things planned for the coming months. Keep in touch.
