I had seen little of Holmes lately. My marriage had drifted us away from each other. My own complete happiness, and the home-centred interests which rise up around the man who first finds himself master of his own establishment, were sufficient to absorb all my attention, while Holmes, who loathed every form of society with his whole Bohemian soul, remained in our lodgings in Baker Street, buried among his old books, and alternating from week to week between cocaine and ambition, the drowsiness of the drug, and the fierce energy of his own keen nature. He was still, as ever, deeply attracted by the study of crime, and occupied his immense faculties and extraordinary powers of observation in following out those clues, and clearing up those mysteries which had been abandoned as hopeless by the official police.
The Good Lord Bird, a estreia de Ethan Hawke em televisão, centra-se num homem cuja história não vem nos livros de História mais leccionados. A série já vai a meio – o quarto episódio estreia-se esta noite na HBO Portugal — mas é um comboio desgovernado de humor e tragédia à americana, centrado no abolicionista John Brown e no estertor da escravatura no século XIX, que vale a pena apanhar. Embora a narrativa se baseie no premiado romance homónimo de James McBride, desde logo se avisa o espectador que “tudo isto é verdade” e que “a maior parte disto aconteceu”. E é nos intervalos entre estas duas certezas que vibra uma série cheia de perguntas numa altura em que os EUA desesperam por respostas.
READ & WRITE
Artigo is an old style inspired typeface system for text. It was inspired by the handwriting aspect of the first roman types but it intends to be a contemporary interpretation. Its abilities are in small text with personality. The italics capture a lot of its dynamic feeling even more expressive on the display version that stands as the most handwritten one. This project started at the University of Reading while attending the MA Typeface Design in 2011. The project grew since then and now supports Greek and Cyrillic. The greek counterpart won the second prize of the Granshan Awards in 2011.
