Vatican Celebrates Pope Benedict XVI With E-Book Written In Comic Sans
The photo — which appears in a 62-page e-book published by the Vatican to commemorate the career of Benedict upon his retirement — is spoiled, however, by the caption underneath it (click to enlarge). It's written in Comic Sans, the balloon-y, cartoon-y typeface that's regarded as a design faux pas by art directors and other creative professionals.
The caption reads, 'Being Christian is not the result of an ethical choice or a lofty idea, but the encounter with an event, a person, which gives life a new horizon and a decisive direction.'
But because the entire book is written in Comic Sans, the sentence feels sarcastic and jokey.
As its name suggests, Comic Sans attempts to replicate the look of words inside the speech bubbles that appear in comics. As such, anything written in Comic Sans instantly appears trivial."
