Alignment

I liked the section on Alignment in this week’s reading.  It’s cool to see how the different alignments can create different lines of force around a page.  We saw an example of this in Tuesday’s class with one of the resumés in which a student had the headings flushed right and the bulk text flushed left creating a straight, distinctive line down the page.  Along with lines of force, alignment can be used to set off different sets of text like in newspapers.  There are some newspapers that distinguish their editorial pieces with ragged type whereas the rest of the paper is neat and justified.
