Unknown God Rubrics

Red is good (yeah, yeah, I also know the association with Stanford). Ægir Hallmundur at Ministry of Type shows us a picture of the good red-black combination:

Everyone loves colour.

I’d like to see rubrics in the body of To An Unknown God some time in the future, when ‘more money’ materializes. Mediæval missals often rubricated instructions explaining what the priest had to do during a liturgical service, leaving the sections to be spoken aloud in black. Such a rhetorical gesture as rubrics in an article would be interesting. It would allow the construction of commentary lines of text in the midst, different from marginalia: rather than conveying the thing performed, they would convey performative instructions.

This makes for fun.
