Fancying up the place

Book reviews have steadily crowded out other posts on my blog. So I’ve fiddled with my theme to make them both visually distinct and, at the same time, stink the place up a bit less.

It took more fiddling than I had expected. I’ve created customised files for the index page, the Book Reviews page and for individual blog post pages (which inserts a “Book Review” badge on the title). There’s also some custom CSS to tie it all together.

If you’re wondering about the font in the badges, it’s called “Dijkstra”. It’s based on the handwriting of the famous computer scientist, E.W. Dijkstra, who wrote all his manuscripts with pen and paper. The Dijkstra font was created by Luca Cardelli.
