An Uptown Dandy & The Rake


Its always nice to have the last word - but, in this case, Beau James takes an entire page all for himself. In the latest edition of The Rake, I contribute a short piece on New York's Prohibition-era Mayor James J. Walker, noted dandy and general man about town. You can read more about His Honor here.

  1. Enjoy your column.
    But, find it difficult to read the blue type set against an olive drab background.
    But, this is common to the internet.
    So-called designers show they know nothing of color.
    The reason your blue & olive don't mix is something called "value" which is the amount of light & dark in color. See how the reversed-out white type jumps out from the olive?
    But, still for readability nothing beats black type on white.
