transformations by way of sheets of style to the Kirby Content Mgmt. Sys.


The only joy in the world is to begin. It is good to be alive because living is beginning, always, every moment. When this sensation is lacking—as when one is in prison, or ill, or stupid, or when living has become a habit—one might as well be dead.

Cesare Pavese

OCTAVO1 is a theme for the Kirby CMS, originally inspired by a blog post by Clive Thompson, Why 18th century books looked like smartphone screens2.
