A Digital Remake

Monday 28 May 2007

A Digital Remake is a master’s thesis about using Python and NodeBox to create illuminated capitals (I think — it’s in Italian). It’s a gorgeous document. One interesting twist: throughout the thesis, letters are circled in blue, and connected with long tendrils to other letters, sometimes across pages. I don’t know what it means, and I don’t know what tools he used to produce the PDF, but it’s an intriguing little twist.


the document metadata indicates he used indesign CS2 to create it. i was going to guess that he used nodebox for those connected letters, but that could be indesign.

nodebox is quite nice -- i was using it on the plane the other day, and i may steal some concepts from the layer-based coreimage renderer...
