I’ve logged more experience than most with simplicity and the complexity you discover inside simplicity, minimalism and asocial behavior, endurance and landscape.
Here is the truth: I think some deep wisdom inside me (a) sensed the stress, (b) was terrified for me, and (c) gave me something new and hard to focus on in order to prevent me from lapsing into a despair coma — and also to keep me from having a jelly jar of wine in my hand.

With this issue, we are introducing several design changes, including a new typeface, Warnock, which is replacing our workhorse font of many years, Goudy Old Style.
The original Goudy is a typographic masterpiece from one of the preeminent craftsmen of the profession, Frederic W. Goudy. Unfortunately, the digital version of this font (in which this paragraph is set) is a little pale and lacks the full complement of character shapes that The Sun requires. Recent advances in digital type technology, as well as a bevy of new designs, convinced us it was time for a change.
We have chosen Warnock (designed by Robert Slimbach, a contemporary master) for both its beauty and its functionality. It has a comfortable and familiar feel, and there is a strong presence of the calligraphic nib in the shape of its letters — giving it a warmth that seems appropriate for The Sun. We hope that you enjoy our new look, and find it easier on the eyes.
