Part of The Great Wave Of Futurity
I thought I might try to put together a 72 Letter design that uses some of the text from Genesis 11 - the Tower of Babel story, along with the transliteration for 'geekstalt' and each of our names, making a double Chiang reference. What think you?|
UPDATE: I've now put together 72 Hebrew letters made up of the following: transliterations of 'Ted Chiang' 'Niall' 'Andrew' 'Tom' 'Liz' 'Geneva', a translation/transliteration of the phrase 'Do not scorn the geekstalt' and a line from Genesis 11:4 meaning 'And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven'. I've tried them out in two configurations: 7 letters in 10 lines (plus 2) and 10 letters in 7 lines (plus 2). I prefer the latter myself, but will present both when I see you all at Eastercon.
