Aziz, deleted - is part of a series I'm working on which speaks of the destruction, deconstruction and reconstruction of the written word. It may appear stupidly simple - but it ain't.
This is a great thread, nice question stephen - I see some familiar names who have/do inspire me, and some new ones too.
Maybe someone with a flickr account can gather images from those sugguested and compile a flickr place for them?
a little avant-weird, but Jan Svankmajer's films make rather extensive use of typography in fairly unprecedented ways..

I say this periodically: Bantjes is the messiah of PoMo.
So unlike the hooligans of the 90s.

Very nice, Aziz. Are those yours?
