I thought The Elements of Typographic Style Applied to the Web might be the Holy Grail of web typography but this adaptation of Bringhurst’s principles to a typographically-hobbled web ground to an unexplained halt in 2006. Most of Richard Rutter’s Web Typography and Clagnut site files were lost to a “catastrophic database failure,” aka no database back-up, but he’s gradually restoring as much as he can from archives.

Do any of my fellow TypeManiacs believe The Elements is still a feasible project? If they do, and If Mr. Rutter is too busy to finish it, would they be interested in collaborating?
