Happy April Fonts!

Hello all!

Just a brief note to let you know that in case you didn’t get it (and of course you did, because you’re smart enough to read Kasterborous) that the earlier story EXCLUSIVE: A Second New Companion! was in fact a ruse.

It is of course April Fool’s Day so we thought it only right to continue our past tradition of playing an annual prank on our readers with this small story whose blatant use of a certain theme throughout should have alerted you to what was going on.

First off, a big thank you to my sister Justine Cawley for appearing as the actress “Justine Alexander”!

She was of course said to be playing Arial Verdana, a new Roman time traveller.

Now if that sentence alone didn’t give it away, then you probably don’t know much about the various web friendly fonts that can be used safely by web designers. Arial, Verdana and Times New Roman are all mentioned in the above line.

Elsewhere in the article, we also introduced you to Century Gothic, Amaze, Latin, New York, Chicago, Geneva, Comic (sans), Script(s), Fantasy and Impact.

We hope you enjoyed that little bit of mischief, inspired by The Guardian’s 1977 hoax.
