The Elephants of Typography

The subject line quotes to title of brilliant words and pictures from Grant Snider, who wrote:

"I drew this comic after spending some quality time with The Elements of Typographic Style by Robert Bringhurst. It was a engaging and thoughtful book on a subject that can seem frighteningly esoteric to non-designers. Still, no book exists that cannot be improved with elephants."

It's available as a poster. I do believe I'm going to succumb to the temptation.

With a tip o'the link hat to Abi's Parhelia on Making Light.

I just sent this to John D. Berry, I think yesterday.
It's irregular, but incidental comics is one of the more recent additions to my really weird comics list.
((& cross-checking, thinkum's Fred doesn't seem to be my expected default Fred. I'm not sure if we're acquainted or not.))
