”Some people write about happy things, but it’s real easy to write about falling in love. That’s fine, because there has to be a place for music as pure escapism. But there’s also a place for reality in music, singing about home-truths. We’re not trying to depress people. On the contrary, we’re trying to lift people out of depression by telling ‘em they’re not alone.”
Layne Staley [Metal Hammer - 1993]

Medieval advertisement for a bookstore
In medieval times, books were not just made by monks. By the thirteenth century commercial scribes had become the go-to people for a book. To attract clients, the professionals running these “bookstores” made advertisement sheets, like this one. They were usually put on display outside the shop’s entrance: clients looked at the samples and choose a letter type for the book they were about to order. This one is from the shop of Herman Strepel in Münster, Germany, and dates from c. 1447. Herman did an excellent marketing job because he wrote the names of the letter types in gold next to the samples.
