BOLD.

Times New Roman, the font invented by the Times of London and used by the Irish Times, deployed to devastating effect in Irish newspaper WAR.

    You’ve got to think that when the Times (Irish edition) strategy is try to confuse readers into thinking they’re The Irish Times, they’re onto a loser straight away. This is going to end up going the same way as Sky News Ireland.

    That Irish magazine about hot presses is a real
    let down as well, total missinformation!

      I was going to offer my opinion on Niall Stokes but the moderators would probably have to delete it :)

    The serifs on those two Ts are entirely different. There are a number of versions of ‘Times’.

      They are as different as night and day, sloped serif versus rounded serif, one has a slanted end to the crossbar and the other is flat.

    “and used by the Irish Times (but probably for not much longer),”

    You know nothing about typefaces and how they work or are licensed.

    I’m not sure what the word is, but surely a font isn’t ‘invented’, is it? Isn’t it ‘designed’? Or ‘Ripped off from somewhere else and subtly changed a wee bit’?

    I bought the Sunday Times on Sunday, what a pile of sh*te. What’s hot, what’s not… oh please. I bought the Irish Times yesterday; the front page advertised Michael Harding, page 13. Turned to page 13, no sign of him, two pages back he is found. Not a lot between them really.

      No offence Lilly but other than lining the cat litter tray I consider your spending choices wasteful
