favorite art/design theory reads?

obviously for design, steven heller is sort of one of those leading authors to keep track of.

but i'm wondering, what are your favorite theory reads for either design or art? i am talking in both the capacity of published literature or ongoing blogs.

for books, the looking closer series was good, and things like susan sontag and even aspects of some philosophy (hume is a personal favorite). for blogs, stuff like design observer.

i dunno. what do you all read to keep your theoretical interests / mindset active?


Calf Tattoos

I got a birthmark on my left calf, and I want to cover it up with a tattoo. I'm a tattoo virgin but I checked out a few shops for estimates. They said I needed to come up with the artwork so looking for some inspiration. I like the look of the yakuza tattoos.

SASS Math function

Anyone here good with math and creating functions with SASS. I created an equation that accomplishes what I want, but it's really inelegant. I know it can be written more efficiently. Anyone want to give it a go?

Here's what I have.
@mixin adjust-vertical-rhythm($number, $more-space-above:0, $more-space-below:0) {
margin-top: ((10 - ($number % 10)) * 1px) + ($inuit-base-line-height * $more-space-above);
margin-bottom: ($inuit-base-line-height - (10 - ($number % 10))) + ($inuit-base-line-height * $more-space-below);

Wordpress Gallery tags

I am looking for a Gallery plugin for Wordpress where I can upload images and give them tags/categories e.g red, door, window.

Then I can use a short code to place selections of these grouped images into the page throughout the site. Some images might have multiple tags/categories so feature in different galleries.

I see you can do this with nexgen gallery, but does anyone know anything else?

Use of serif fonts for web body copy?

Would you use serif fonts for web body copy, on a site where readability is important?

There has been a lot of debate on this. Personally, i find, say, Georgia, as legible to read as, say, Arial. But it goes against what i learned at school.

Thoughts? :)
