I haven’t been able to find any space for creative work, so in the meantime I’ve added a citation and bibliography system. You can see examples in the Typefaces design section, now expanded with some background history for the typefaces used on this site.

Bibliographic entires are stored in CSL-JSON. The Citation Style Language processor doesn’t seem to do a great job at supporting markup, so the processing is custom. The format is MLA-ish, but not really, and I probably should write a whole page about this thing when I finish all the other things I’m not finding the space to work on.
