Letterology: Typewriter Portraiture

Letterology: Typewriter Portraiture | ASCII Art | Scoop.it

As the news today of the last typewriter manufacturer calling it quits, I want to stop for a moment to champion the typewriters' analog charms—such as the noise it makes, the monospaced characters it imprints on paper, and the many ways it can be manually manipulated with a bit of dexterity—and no one does this better than British artist Nadine Faye James. I first became acquainted with Nadine's type-infused artworks about 5 years ago after finding full page color illustrations of her work in the British magazine, Waitrose Food Illustrated. Her work was littered with letters. Typewriter o's, would become snowfall or a fruit bowl, an italic cap B might be a real cap on someone's head, and a D could be a pot of soup when on it's face. Charming stuff.

The Corpus Christi Prime

The Corpus Christi Prime | ASCII Art | Scoop.it
This number is a prime, with 2688 digits. It also looks rather a lot like Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. The top left corner encodes my initials, JRH, in ASCII. The bottom right corner is my date of birth. I was inspired by Numberphile's most recent video, which demonstrates a prime number of 1350 digits, which…

Creative Market has ASCII Art - For the Stealing

Creative Market has ASCII Art - For the Stealing | ASCII Art | Scoop.it
The ASCII Art pattern set is early Internet and retro 90s. Colorful, fun and creative—the designs are in vibrant, pastel and neutral colorways. Use these patterns for packaging, invitations, cards, gift wrap, wallpaper, notebook and book covers, social media banners, blog headers, Instagram posts, flyers, posters, fabric prints, stationery,
Laura Brown's insight:

You can buy this uncredited (artist initials removed) ASCII art. But, why buy it? Just steal it the same way this seller has. 

 

Use the art any way you like. What do they care, all they did was copy and paste it. Does adding a background colour give them full copyrights?
