(Typographic Lord’s Prayer)
Typographic Lord’s Prayer
Our Father who art in leading,
typeface be thy game.
Your kerning come;
Your work be done on screen, as it is in print.
Give us this display our foundry set,
and forgive us our Grotesk,
as we have forgiven our ascenders.
And lead us not into rasterisation,
but deliver us from PostScript.
For thine are the accents, the baseline and the glyph.
Descender and italics. Amen.
Andrew Warwick, May 2015
