Today’s post, like yesterday’s was inspired by Vi Hart’s Möbius Story: Wind and Mr. Ug, a wonderfully twisted little tale about self-reflection and the unexpected turns that love can take.
I thought would be good to build an interactive tool for telling such stories. My first step is the font below (seen with its mirror image), which I call (in honor of Vi’s tale) the Möbius story font:
Following on discussions I had with Vi recently, the next step is to build a vocabulary from this font of words that make sense (although maybe very different sense) when read upside down.
Then of course, will come the fun part. Because, in the words of the great Shakespearean actor Sir Edwin: “I don’t want you to get the impression it’s just a question of the number of words… I mean, getting them in the right order is just as important.”
