Pull quote

A facetious solution for literally pulling the quote from the body copy, leaving just an empty outline, and letting the reader skip the already read part. Have your cake and eat it too :-)

It’s a follow-up to a chat with John Burn-Murdoch who pointed to this article by Jeremy Keith.

While it’s meant to be a joke I’d be happier with something like this than with the current practice of setting up pull quote traps for the reader. It serves these purposes:

The styling of the pull would benefit from refinement, to say the least :-) Perhaps italics would be enough. Also it’s hugely non-traditional, not to mention the lower contrast of the repeat.
