As part of the ongoing updates to this site I decided to update the top logo from the plain Georgia fonted “Dave-Wood.Org” to something a bit more catching and original.

From here there are also fonts to buy, including sets by Judith Sutcliffe and in particular “Oldstyle Chewed”, a font based on Goudy Oldstyle but with ants! How could I walk away from that… I should also add excellent customer service.
So now the logo looks like this (although I may change it again on another whim!):
