The Making of "Master and Commander" – Chapter Two
Nice overview of why Geographica typeface is chosen. Will the Clamshell Box use the same typeface?
Wonderful! Thank you so much for these background conversations. They're adding so much to my anticipation and will (no doubt) equally add to my delight in the finished article!
You said "I am trying to let the text guide my decision-making... this edition ought to echo publications of the historical era, but it should not be a slavish imitation. Neither an ersatz antique nor obviously anachronistic." That, of course, is equally true of O'Brian's writing style - it feels completely 'of the period', while being a million miles away from reading like the Naval Chronicle.
Very informative! I agree with your choices, I can’t wait to see the finished book!
