It was dusk in the room with large and empty at all times, now appeared larger and emptier than usual.
The meal began with the comfortable silence of people who are quite at their ease together. Then Ridley, leaning on his elbow and looking out of the window, observed that it was a lovely bright night.
The next few months passed away, as many years can pass away,
Below the sea was still blue and the roofs still brown and white
The climate had kept its promise and the change of season from winter to spring had made little difference, so that Helen, who was sitting in the drawing-room with a pen in her hand, could keep the windows open.
They talk to one as if they were equals. As far as I can tell there are no aristocrats.

The Cholla™ typeface family was designed in 1998-99 and named after a species of cactus indigenous to the Mojave Desert. Cholla was originally developed for Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.

Denise Gonzales Crisp, then art director of the college’s design office, collaborated with Sibylle Hagmann to design a family of typefaces that would include a vast variation of font weights. This diversity of weights was applied to echo the institution’s different areas of study, yet the fonts were to exhibit a unified feel. Formally the individual styles have slightly varying personalities with subtly distinct ideas applied. For example, Cholla Sans Bold includes letterforms with their own peculiar details, rather than being a linear interpolated bolder Sans Regular.

All weights share a tapered curve marked out as, for example, in the lowercase a’s bottom transition from the stem into the bowl as their unifying detail. The Cholla family was first used in the radically designed 1999/2000 Art Center catalog, which won a honorable mention in I.D. magazine and was featured in EYE, 31.

Cholla’s original weight range included 12 different styles. Today a modern classic, the type family is offered in many contemporary type formats with an extended range of 20 styles bundled into Sans, Slab, Wide, and Unicase subgroups. The Cholla fonts are distributed by the Emigre type foundry.
