    Welcome Oakville Girly - glad to have you join!
    One can only dream of what never was
    and as for what "really is,"
    remember:
    it doesn't exist.

    Posting this calligram just for fun. This is by the French poet Apollinaire, Guillaume, who is a forefather of surrealism 20180613_201118-1195x2124.jpg

    That reminds me of (long, long ago) when I was studying typing at school (on the old sit up and beg manual typewriters - you know, the type you see in museums !!) We had to use the keyboard symbols, spacing etc to draw pictures. I loved it. I must have been more creative than I remember as a kid.

    Great story! And I also remember how people would create pictures with the old for matrix printers!

    Trying to get these out to the post office today! Darn it, work gets in the way of my art habit!!! I hope these are what you were thinking for calligrams. I really enjoyed this concept.

    Oh, I think this is a great idea! But the deadline is a bit close for me.

    Would love to have you Zandradee, but you're right, it could be a push to get them across the pond.

    Just a little under 2 weeks to go. If you still have calligram ideas, there is still a little time to join, but not much longer!
