Recent additions

A small flurry of recent additions to this blog:

They all date back to 2007 – 08 and have been posted here under approximately the dates they were written., i.e., way down towards the bottom of the blog, which is why this note seemed worth writing.

Just by way of an afterthought: I wonder whether I would have been quite so keen to republish Journey and its sequels if we hadn’t just suffered through Morrison’s failed attempt to legislate extra privileges for religious groups.

Posts predating this blog

This blog was set up in October 2020. Most of its initial content was transferred from my older (iinet) website and consists of book reviews (primarily fiction and mainly 2005 – 2010), reposted here under their original dates.

It’s worth noting, however, that there are also book reviews (nonfiction and environmentally-themed fiction) on Green Path. All of my reviews are indexed here, whichever blog they are on.

Header image sizes in twenty sixteen

It makes surprisingly little difference if the header images are too small, e.g. 940 x ca 200 px rather than 1200 × 280 which is what twenty sixteen recommends. At window widths less than the image width it makes no difference because the theme re-sizes the image anyway; at larger window widths the image left-aligns but doesn’t right-align. And image height makes no difference at all to the functioning of the theme, unless images of varying heights are used in a slider.

Some of my sample images are tagged with their sizes. Height varies, and (to me) 205 looks a bit miserly, 280 dominates the page too much. ‘Townsville from Mt Stuart’ is 235px high, while my paperbark blossom is 205px high (mainly because that was easiest, working from the versions I had). Both have 12pt Futura titles.
