Aesthetics of Grammar

Up until a few centuries ago the English Language capitalised Nouns, like the Germans still do, and it had fancy 'f' style 's's, and I think It looks a lot more Beautiful that way. There's a nice Symmetry to a Sentence that has some capitalised Words in it. I'm sure I've mentioned before I'm a big Fan of (OCD) when it come to Symmetry.

I also love in old old Books the way they type the first Word of the left Page at the bottom right Corner of the previous right Page so you know what's coming. I presume that's because Books were meant for Reading out. Wouldn't it be lovely if we went back to that style of Print.


  1. i've got a serious like for certain kinds of numbers... i actually stopped my car to take a picture of my mileage counter a while back.
    I really do think i might be lightly effected by OCD.

    Please don't tell anyone i said that.

  2. There's no shame in being OCD. We all have it.
