Describe your website.

Zapfino is a delightful typeface with a great technical implementation that lets you use its rich glyph sets creatively. Because it’s so pretty, it has also become very popular in all sorts of advertisements.

This site collects occurrences of Zapfino ‘in the wild’. Looking at it, one observes that only very few people really benefit from the full beauty of the typeface and that many of them try hard to ruin it.

What techniques did you use to build this website?

A very straightforward site with a photogrid index on its main page and a few small styling tweaks via code injection.
