Arthur Attwell is a friend and I’ve also been a fan of his work for a very long time (ever since his amazing work with Paperright https://story.paperight.com/author/arthurattwell/ ). He just posted an awesome post on Paged Media about his new project – Fire and Lion – and their paged media workflow…

Through my Shuttleworth Fellowship, I am kicking off a new project this week – PagedMedia, focusing on the development of a JS implementation of PagedMedia CSS spec and pagination. It is a new project which addresses a problem I have been looking for ways to solve for a very long time, since 2010 or so.
Fred Chasen and Julie Blanc will be doing all the hard work. Both awesome people and I’m very excited to see this get started!!!
