Or, how I made this website, who helped, and all my inspirations.
This is my site's (abridged) colophon; a word I definitely knew before today. I'm still working on the full write-up, but I didn't want to keep the site up for too long without giving proper credits. So, here is the abridged version for now.
Tom Chalky for typeface and graphics
The primary font is called Volume TC and the secondary font is called Volume TC Sans. Both are handcrafted by Tom Chalky. The graphics are mostly from old books that Tom vectorized and offers in different illustration packages.
Webflow for HTML and CSS
I made the design in Webflow and exported the site (HTML & CSS).
11ty for static site generation
Netlify for hosting (and Github)
Digital Gardens for Ethos
I stumbled on the concept of digital gardens in Maggie Appleton's blog post A Brief History & Ethos of the Digital Garden.
More to come.
