Remember to Proofread the Large Type!

One of the funnier typographical errors I’ve seen recently occurred in about 72 point type in the banner of a newspaper. You can see the front page of New Hampshire’s Valley “Newss” reproduced in an article on the Telegraph.co.uk site.

The big lesson here is that the goofier the error, the farther it will travel. Don’t take anything for granted– be sure to proofread your headlines and subheads!
