Nº 11 My first own home

My first own home was on East 99th Street in NYC. Everything was mine and only mine. I shared it only from time to time with Genghis Khan (aka Mr Pug). All the photos (except for cherry shoes and) are by Pawel Ulatowski.

Nº 9 Grapefruit story

On a Saturday morning I went in my pyjamas to the garden to pick a grapefruit (Citrus x paradisi). When first found in Barbados, it was named the "forbidden fruit." One ancestor of the grapefruit was the Jamaican sweet orange (Citrus sinensis), itself an ancient hybrid of Asian origin; the other was the Indonesian pomelo (Citrus maxima). 

Needless to say I could not eat that particular grapefruit.

Nº 3 History of Bembo

Bembo is a 1929 serif typeface created by the British branch of the Monotype Corporation and most commonly used for body text. It is a member of the "old-style" of serif fonts, with a regular or roman style based on a design cut around 1495 by Francesco Griffo for Venetian printer Aldus Manutius, sometimes generically called the "Aldine roman". Bembo is named for Manutius's first publication with it, a small 1496 book by the poet and cleric Pietro Bembo. The italic is based on work by Giovanni Antonio Tagliente, a calligrapher who worked as a printer the 1520s, after the time of Manutius and Griffo.
