Somerville is a worthy spiritual sequel to Limbo and Inside

The first thing you should know about Somerville, the spiritual sequel to Limbo and Inside, is that the story makes sense. Its predecessors lived on the far end of the narrative spectrum, somewhere between “Buñuelian nightmare” and “that time you smoked salvia in college and disassociated while reading Orwell.” But...

Pentiment’s defining detail is its fonts
