A TextArc is a visual represention of a text — the entire text (twice!) on a single page. Some funny combination of an index, concordance, and summary, it uses the viewer's eye to help uncover meaning.

I received an promotional e-mail from the author a couple days ago. (Ok, it was spam, but it was interesting spam.) To quote:

[W]e've released a first edition of an *exceptionally* high quality poster (100% cotton rag paper, 7 passes of colorfast ink, a newly innovated duotone process for an almost invisible dot-screen, and resolution fine enough to read 1/32" type!) Our goal is simply to break even so we can print more texts. This one explores Alice's Adventures in Wonderland; read more here: http://textarc.org/posters/TextArc_PosterNotes.pdf

If you think your audience would be interested in a follow-up note on the site I have a gift for them: have them enter the site's name (MeatballWiki) in the "promotional code" field on the page after http://www.textarc.com/prints/poster. Instead of the (already inexpensive) $49.95, they'll be charged $39.95. And the first 200 are signed. If more than ten people enter your site's address we'll send you one for free.

Hey, buy some and get me a free poster. ;) -- SunirShah
