Courier spacing, complicated stuff

emilie's picture

Okay this is my first post in the critique section so I'm not too sure
how people work with attachments, I'm guessing a PDF will be fine.

This is a project I'm doing in school in a typographic experimentation
class. The typography itself is not really experimental but it's more
conceptual. The text speaks about the page (or sheet), at first in a
very mathematical way and in the end it becomes an excuse for
imaginary travel.

I'm not sure how to say this in english but it's contained in itself,
at first the author writes :

I'm writing...
I'm writing : I'm writing...
I'm writing : "I'm writing..."
I'm writing that I'm writing...

For this reason, I gave a shot at Courier because it really conveys
that typewriter feel and also because I wanted to work the typography
in depth (I've already tweaked quite a bit of stuff in there).

I'd like to have your opinions, suggestions on the spacing. (And more
if you want / can read the text!)

By the way, some paragraphs are upside down because this is meant to
be folded. If anyone feels like giving it a shot, here are the
simplified translated instructions --

1 : Fold
2 : Flip
3 : Fold corner /
4 : Fold right corner too
5 : Fold one part
6 : Flip
7 : Fold one part
8 : Open and flatten
9 : Fold one part
10 : Fold one part
11 : Open and flatten
12 : Pull here.

Hi Marcio,

It would be better to start a new thread since this is not related to what I initially posted. But maybe it will attract attention to my first post so it doesn't matter anyways =)

Excuse me, after I published it is that I could see that was at wrong place.
