Have a wonderful trip in 2011!

It was a joy receiving this SMS for best wishes in 2011 from a person who doesn't even know I love calligrams!
And I was surprised to see how the complete calligram of the boat is viewable in my old cellular with a little tiny screen (can you see the scratches?!).

The rest of the message was:
Boarding date: 2011
Destination: Happiness
Luggage: Health, Love and Harmony
Have a wonderful trip!

Very charming best wishes calligram, don't you think? ;-)

Maybe on top of the boat instead of the two L's (in lower case) the artist could put two 1's and the calligram best wishes boat would become even more appropriate for the 2011 best wishes.

We can also call this form of calligram Ascii Art: "a technique that uses computers for presentation and consists of pictures pieced together from the 95 printable (from a total of 128) characters defined by the ASCII Standard...", says Wikipedia.

  1. Just wandered into your site. I make ASCII art myself. Nice to see it being used and shown off.
