What’s a “colophon”?
Well, the original roots are pretty interesting, but the more modern usage is “a brief description, usually located at the end of a book, describing production notes relevant to the edition.” In the publishing days of yore, there was actually a guy placing individually cast lead letters in a wooden box and smashing paper and ink together. He would print a “colophon” at the end of the book to tell you a bit about the craft, the font, and other (sorta dorky) details about the book he made for you to enjoy. So, my notes about the craft and other (very dorky) details about this website, which I made for you to enjoy:
The graphic design of site was accomplished using Illustrator & Photoshop, featuring original stopphysics photography for textures and elements. It was handcoded here in lovely Portland, Oregon, according to web site design standards using xHTML, CSS, PHP, JAVA, and AJAX. You can find links to the opensource web site design code, scripts, and software on our links page, under “OpenSource Goodies”. The web site design code templates were tested and them turned into a custom WordPress web site design Theme.
