A charming collection of typographical errors, slips of the pen, and embarrassing misprints, Just My Typo celebrates the awful and the sublime mistakes that riddle our feeble human attempts at communication. It's time to accept the truth: typos are everywhere. Legal documents are riddled with errors, headlines of respectable publications are rife with misspellings, and even your favorite books need a few reprints to get everything right. Isn't it time we learned to laugh at our mistakes instead of despairing? Just My Typo is an irresistible collection of the most humorous, mistakenly poignant, and downright awful typos in texts, from the Bible to insurance advertisements to political slogans. Within these pages, you’ll travel back in time with great figures from history, such as Sir Francis Drake (who circumcised the world in a small ship) and Rambo (the famous French poet). You’ll also find valuable moral instruction (“Blessed are the meek, for they shall irrigate the earth.”), and meet politicians who exploit disasters to boost their pubic profiles. Structured according to categories (such as, “To Be or To Be: Typos in Literature”), you’ll easily find either a quick laugh or a relaxing—and cringe-inducing—read. A few more of the gems within: · “The Queen pissed graciously over the Menai Bridge.” · “I am certain of one thing. Whatever may come between us—and wherever he may be on earth—Arthur will always remember that I love ham.” (The Parting, Millicent Hemming) · “Love is just a passing fanny.” Editors, proofreaders, and writers everywhere pull their hair out trying to eliminate mistakes, to no avail. Celebrating the humanity of our errors and the timelessness of mistakes, Just My Typo is essential reading for anyone who values the power and peril of the written word.

Just My Type is not just a font book, but a book of stories. About how Helvetica and Comic Sans took over the world. About why Barack Obama opted for Gotham, while Amy Winehouse found her soul in 30s Art Deco. About the great originators of type, from Baskerville to Zapf, or people like Neville Brody who threw out the rulebook, or Margaret Calvert, who invented the motorway signs that are used from Watford Gap to Abu Dhabi. About the pivotal moment when fonts left the world of Letraset and were loaded onto computers ... and typefaces became something we realised we all have an opinion about. As the Sunday Times review put it, the book is 'a kind of Eats, Shoots and Leaves for letters, revealing the extent to which fonts are not only shaped by but also define the world in which we live.' This edition is available with both black and silver covers.

Since 1995, Michelle Cox has been an active participant in online chatrooms, gaming sites, and lobby activity. She is also a nurse who was a regular visitor to the Physicians Online room, a place that became more to her than just a chatroom. The people who made Physicians Online a phenomenon became a family. There, doctors, nurses, and other professionals shared their lives together. They extended their relationships beyond the keyboard, meeting for lunch, events, parties, and much more. The face-to-face parties were legendary, and now Michelle welcomes you into her memories. To protect the innocent—and the infamous—she has changed or altered the screen names of the real-life characters who populated her online haunts. Even so, each and every story is inspired by reality. The community was involved in drama, sex, outrageous parties, and even murder. Physicians Online invented the word cyber-bullying before it became a world-wide term. In this personal narrative, Michelle shares true and amazing stories about her experiences with this online group with the hope of conveying just a little of what she felt in the early days of Internet communities.
