Nice. The "Colors of San Diego" photos are luscious, and I love the "Unintentional Art" tables.

So, is Peter Sandback’s work a profound expression of minimalism? “It’s really just a nice smooth place to set down your coffee cup,” says Sandback. Bingo.

Heh. nice post zeoslap.

It's pretty, and I got a kick out of a couple of the stories, but the book-like, fixed-size layout is pretty silly on the web.

You know what, though, majick? My eye was relieved to see those pages. I think the book-like layout worked in this context, and I'm just really tired of seeing so many sites that look so much alike. (Obviously, just my personal opinion.)

The book format grew on me this time around, I like that it has a distinct style all of it's own. The guys who run the site clearly put a lot of effort into each issue. Glad you liked it.

I think the point of the web, at least my NCSA grey-background vision of it, is to allow the user agent, rather than the content author to make those decisions -- if you prefer a book-like presentation, you use a user agent that breaks the data up into pieces for you to look at. I would not be surprised to find out that one of the zillions of failed browsers in the evolt archive does something like that. I still like the site, and it's going to be a regular read for me now, but it's in spite of the really seriously minor sense of inappropriateness to the layout (and the poor usability of having to move away from the end of page's flow, back to the top of the screen, to "flip" the page) rather than because of it.

majick, I'm sure you are right about everything. But I still like it, because I'm often bored with what is web-standards-proper and because sometimes design that can only be achieved when the content author makes the decisions is really nice to look at. Maybe I'm not supposed to like it, but I can live with that.
