Maybe just because I just this afternoon finished reading "Snow Crash", but I find myself to be a big fan of Fathi's work -- calligraphy / language as robust & vivid & vital incarnation / incantation of something much bigger. Striking stuff.

And maybe just because I'm listening to Man Man and am cold, Ghai-Far's work looks like water turning into ice and not being at all happy about the fact.

Thanks for the post!
