a body of work



I came across this beautiful alphabet on the web somewhere and now can't find it again to be able to credit its maker, but will keep trying. People make words out of whatever they have at hand - their mouths and their bodies if nothing else is about.
Tonight at the if:bookgroup we discuss whether this Is Really It, ie. the moment when the reading public begins to enjoy reading off e-Readers, iPhones eTcetera. Although I'm looking forward to getting my Sony thingy through the post and love my iTouch, I'm really only slightly interested in the gizmos, far more in where words go next as they lift off the page.
