Deep into preparations for the Inkscape tutorial I'm giving at linux.conf.au in Hobart in January, I've been practicing techniques and recording them using RecordMyDesktop. It is a Linux application that does exactly what it says, screencast and audio recording of what's happening on screen.  It works very well!

Garamond is a pretty font - especially the italic ampersandGaramond is a gorgeous font and one I have loved for a long long time.

It has a magnificent italic ampersand, and back in my mac days, I recall it having some lovely ornaments I was fond of using on the title pages of essays.

Still can't quite believe it.  Hugely grateful to Bryant Patten of the National Center for Open Source in Education for the opportunity, and for having such faith in me.

I do hope the audience got something out of it.
