The I's Have It

I see that I'm more than a month behind on reviewing my correspondence, even though I have this wonderful piece by j0llyr0ger to consider.

j0llyr0ger, "Parallax Factor of the Letter I" (16 Feb 2005)

Mimicking Da Vinci's anatomical study of a man within a circle and a square, "Parallax Factor of the Letter I" presents a visual examination of the allographic variation of the letter I in different physical (typographic) forms. j0llyr0ger shows his hand: a printer's fist, one with a tight grip on the meaning of letterforms. And his choice of sample letter is a visual poetry classic: I, the letter representing unending consciousness, the letter which in its plural form (i's) appears to be a study of existence itself.
