You are Kurious
There are days when your regular old Lorem Ipsum or placeholder text just isn’t keeping you on your toes. So I found new inspiration from Mark E Smith’s The Fall, an environment where everyone is kept on their toes with job security that can last mere minutes. I’ve created a new Lorem Ipsum file made up of all 39 current and previous members of The Fall (as listed on Wikipedia) to turn your documents into This Nation's Saving Grace:

How To Pervert Your Language
1. Click here to download the Lorem Ipsum file
2. Rename it as “placeholder.txt”
3. Put it in your InDesign application folder

If your application starts to Bend Sinister, you can get full instructions on how to install it from

(NB This is also an informal way of testing your clients' tastes. Most will not recognise this Roll of Honour. Their work will pay the bills. A few will recognise these names. Their work will feed your soul).


RIP Mark E Smith (1957-2018)
