Blog Redesign


Hello readers, and welcome to a very significant redesign of this nascent blog.

For those of you who don’t collect science magazines from the mid-80s, the new Space Canon design is a serious homage to OMNI, a seminal publication that ran from the late 1970s to the mid-90s. OMNI was a science magazine, but it didn’t draw heavy lines in the dirt: it ran stories from the likes of William Gibson and Orson Scott Card, as well as gonzo interviews with visionary scientists and thinkers, and, in later, years, deep features on fringe science and the paranormal.


Fun fact about OMNI: turn the magazine on its side, and the print reads O, 3, 2, 1.

Big thanks to Jona Bechtolt for making this dream a reality.

  1. Beautiful! Wish my sci-fi tastes were as clean. But, alas, I spent way too much time watching Buck Rodgers and Battlestar Galactica in my formative years.

    It was an honor and pleasure to redesign this blog. It’s now my favorite on URHO, and has set the bar for future designs and redesigns.

    I just added Cabel’s FancyZoom to Space Canon as well. This is a test.

    The redesign is excellent. I read Omni when it first came out and you’ve re-created the aesthetic very well.
