Northern Lights – colour palette

Northern lights are a result of the collision of gaseous particles in the Earth's atmosphere.  This palette I created from the deep and cosmic colours of a photo taken in Estonia. I have called it Aurora.

Aldus Manuitus – pioneer of printing

The type in which this sentence is written is called "italic". Aldus Manutius the man who invented it died almost 500 years ago and his type is still in use.  Today publishing a manuscript is almost instantaneous, a new best seller can be placed on Amazon and I can buy a copy minutes later.  To look at the books which came off the Venitian presses of Aldus Manutius is a strange experience.
