About the design
on February 21, 2006
This design was inspired by a book written by Georges Perec called "A Void". The book was written in French completely without the use of any words that contain the letter "e", and then translated into English the same way. The words "a shadow curving into nothing" are my re-interpretation of a passage from the book where the protagonist describes the missing letter (ie., the thing that is missing from his world).
Also, just in case it isn't immediately clear (and it isn't crucial that you notice it right away - if at all) the shape of the design itself forms a lower-case "e".
