The whale
# 24

Hi everyone!

As you have probably already noticed, this issue # 24 comes with a new layout and design. To be honest, I hadn't coded a newsletter in a long time and it was a hell of a thing. I tried to use several frameworks: MJML, Foundation email ... but none of them gave me 100% satisfaction.

Then I came across a small framework called Antwort on Github. The last commit was made in Jul 22, 2017 but however, I decided to give it a try and ta da ... the miracle happened! The layout and design was exactly the same in my browser and in Gmail which was not the case with the others framework. So thank you Julie Ng ( the creator of Antwort ), I am very grateful to you.
