    Returned it successfully. That was way easier than I expected. Apple for the win.

    As cool as this is, this isn't a tutorial. It's a squeeze page. Advertise on DN

    I rock the Everyday Backpack from Peak Design. Its a truly remarkable piece of engineering. Its sleek and minimal for the daily carry and then it surprises the hell out of you when its time to load it up. Awesome protection for all your gear, lockable zippers for when you're traveling, and super easy to get in and out of. Everyday Back Pack

    And they've employed the same sneaky, deceptive pricing technique. Its not $15/mo... its $45 every 3 months, or $144 per year. I've posted about this same thing before. Being tricky in an effort to make your product look less expensive is just a turn off when potential customers are surprised by the actual cost. If you don't feel comfortable telling your potential customer the actual cost of your product then its not worth what you're asking.

    Seems interesting, but horizontal scroll-jacking. :(

    +1 — I follow the same almost exactly. The only difference being what you refer to as "Foundation" I refer to as "Fragments."

    I'd look at using a different treatment on the citation for the testimonials. The larger, bolder, and highlighted treatment draws way more attention to the person rather than what they said. I'd reverse the typographic hierarchy there.

    Additionally, you've got some writing that could be improved. You should strive to hit a 7th grade reading level. I live by a tool called Hemingway App. Here's a screenshot of how your paragraph towards the bottom of the page performs.

    #shamelessplug ;p But in all seriousness, the book looks interesting. Any word on a release date?

    I've been using TypePlate for years, but this looks very nice. Thanks for sharing.

    I would agree with @joshua-turner though about a system font stack. It makes your boilerplate look less opinionated. :)
