I have no printing hardware at all myself, so anybody who
wants to collaborate, here's what I would suggest: print
something (in any way that you like, hopefully nothing
*too* exotic) and snailmail it to me*. I will scan it,
composite it over the actual outline letterforms, and
publish it here. If I don't have the font used, I would
need to ask for an EPS of the text-as-outlines, emailed.
Font choice: Something ubiquitous would make things
easier on my end. On the other hand, variety would
reveal more about the nature of gain. We might want
to discuss this a bit.

This is great news. Dwiggins, Justin, and
now that guy are all in the same ballpark.
