whoever invented bilingual layouts are bitches

Bilingual layouts are pain in the ass. and it is even worse when you have to put two very different language together side by side. eg: Chinese English. Fuck it.

but I have to say the japs are quite good in bilingual layouts. the japs are good in everything. and I always feel kind of sad that the East Asian typography world belongs to them. I mean, afterall mincho was based on the songti they bought from shanghai back in the 20s. and the typographic aesthetics are based on calligraphy which has roots back to as far as tang dynasty or something.

If only civil war didnt happen and there was no WWII and communism didnt exist.
