check out the size of this fantastic illiteracy! What point size that, 24?

She also points out the bonus mistake just under the picture:

Marina Warner introduces Paula Rego’s new illustrations for Charlotte Bront’s Jane Eyre

That should be Bronte’s, of course… unless they intended the apostrophe to pull double duty, showing possession *and* omission! 😉

  1. I bet the “Bronte” gaffe has to do with their attempt to include the diacritical over the final “e.” If they coded it incorrectly, it might not display at all.

    Not trying to excuse them, because they’re entirely condemned on the “artists’s” (it hurts just to type that). Just sayin’.

  2. pretty funny Annelisa, but i’m pretty sure you forgot an entire word in your post (missing the word “is” in the last sentence)… 😉
