I really love mattlatmatt's Old Book theme for its reference to the typographic red/black style. I pay my respect to Matt by citing his interpretation first (what a head start!):




A very few things I did change though:

  • I don't like to mix fonts, so I had to take a single Font.
  • I like it readable, so that font should be sans-serif. I chose to use Helvetica. I'd love to spend my life looking at Futura >100 times a day, cf. Pedros minimal theme. But I've got to get some work done, and Futura is not nearly as readable (save maybe the original one ;-)
  • I like these red numbers so much that I made them bigger (more readable, lets me navigate to results faster, and removes the sterility which Helvetica carries along).
  • I added a slight level of transparency and tuned brightness a little bit away from white. It looks like milky glass, so cool!
  • A hint: Turn on Andrew's blurry hack.

Wanted to share it before, but I only today learned how to embed screenshots via Droplr. So here it is, New Book:
