Saturday 26 December 2009This is over 13 years old. Be careful.

BibliOdyssey came to my attention because of tweets about their Victorian Infographics post, which is very nice, but they have lots more in a similar vein. I also liked History of Colour Systems, and especially Arabic Calligraphy:

Abstract Arabic calligraphy

The idea that this beautiful interweaving is also writing is fascinating to me. The post has a few other examples of abstractly beautiful Arabic writing, and links elsewhere.

That’s what BibliOdyssey is like: a quick browse in a rich library, a brief introduction to exotic topics with pointers off to more information. There’s no way to chase them all down, but I feel like in another life I could devote myself to their study...
