Willemien Goris's curator insight, November 26, 2014 5:24 PM

Ik vind het wel belangrijk dat boeken er goed uitzien, zowel langs de buitenkant als langs de binnenkant. Als de buitenkant saai is, dan gaan er weinig mensen echt geïnteresseerd om het boek dan ook daadwerkelijk te lezen. Als de binnenkant (dan ook) saai is, dan gaan er niet veel mensen zijn die verder gaan lezen. De opmaak is dus redelijk belangrijk als je als schrijver je lezers echt wilt aanspreken met het boek.

Interesting that the term 'poster demonstration' is used - normally they are called presentations / poster sessions.  The term 'demonstration' was only used in the formative years & was rarely seen after @ 1975.

This Musical Typewriter Turns Sentences Into Sound

This Musical Typewriter Turns Sentences Into Sound | visual communication | Scoop.it

What would a word, sentence or paragraph sound like translated through an outdated machine?

This strange question actually has an answer, thanks to Lasse Munk and Søren Andreasen, two musically inclined designers from Denmark. By connecting some old-school machinery to new-fangled technology, the duo has figured out a way to translate your words into music.
