Jon Tan truly is a master of typography and shows exactly how a designer can pull off a beautiful site, with very few images and a few colors. I encourage you to take a gander at the site, look around and pay attention to the details.
From ampersands, headings, side notes, his site logo (text all styled with CSS!), to his about page, Jon Tan truly is a master of CSS, typography and immaculate web design. I dig it. Go Jon! You Rock!
