Mysteries of the Unexplained

New Site Design

Mysteries of the Unexplained now offers a secondary, low bandwidth version of the site. Please check it out and let us know what you think in the forums.

Personal Server

Mysteries of the Unexplained is proud to announce that is now is running off of its own server. While this will offer faster load times, it will also mean that the site will be down more often than it used to be simply because we must now figure out and run the server ourselves.

[Note: This font is only needed for proper viewing of the standard site, not this low bandwidth edtion.]

The "JSL Ancient" and "JSL Ancient Italic" fonts are based on a set of two nearly identical typefaces that were used by seventeenth century printers in Great Britain. These two works were "A compendious view of the late tumults & troubles in this kingdom by way of annals for seven years," by James Wright and printed 1685 by Edward Jones and the second was "Ars Pictoria, or an Academy treating of Drawing, Painting, Limning and Etching," by Alexander Browne and, printed in 1668 by J. Redmayne. There are two versions of this font, one the standard Roman and the other an italic variation. Because of their detail, antique appearance, and taste of history, these fonts are useful for many purposes and, in the case of this site, help to complete an unique atmosphere like no other.
