Yes yes, far less important than other things, but I want to get it out there for a change of pace. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Most stone slab-type readings that existed in the game prior to Update 16 were on a large plaque, not something that looks like a book. They also contained fairly brief messages.
While I appreciate the art team for making new books - the moving bookshelves are bomb, by the way - the new texture combined with the volume of the text is eye-straining. There's also spacing issues due to the narrow space allotted for the text, so you'll end up with something like
A REALLY LONG
(I can provide a screenshot when I get home, but since the template didn't have Eidetic Memory I have to hunt for an offending book again.)
There's also not enough contrast between the text and the background - it's black on gray. It's pretty hard to read. My suggestion is either bezel the text or lighten the stone texture. If you could also shrink the text by one font size, that would be great for having more content on the page. As it is, it seems like everyone in the Clockwork City can only consume Tweet-sized pages of information.
Thanks for reading and hopefully you consider this! (:
