The Local Yarn is published with Textpattern CMS. Writing is saved locally in plain-text (Markdown) format, then processed into straight HTML which is then further marked up as necessary and entered into Textpattern.
Body text is set in Kepler, created by Adobe type designer Robert Slimbach in the tradition of classic modern 18th-century typefaces. Top-level headings are set in Livory, a typeface inspired by “snaggy forests, mellow meadows, wuthering heights and the season’s changes,” as well as by the French Renaissance Antiquas from the 16th century.
Watercolour illustrations are by Jessica Dueck.
The Howell Creek Radio Podcast is also by Joel, and is syndicated from the podcast’s website.
