A change in Title

So I started this blog with the title “Eat Paper, Drunk Ink.” It’s a quote from Shakespeare’s Love’s Labour’s Lost, where a character uses this phrase to describe literacy. It was also a placeholder, because I don’t really like it and it’s obscure.

The new title is also obscure, but you know right away (I hope, given the content of the blog) what it means. It’s from an English poem:

Whence did the wond’rous mystic art arise

Of painting speech, and speaking to the eyes?

That we, by tracing magic lines, are taught

How both to colour and embody thought?

~Breboeuf

So there we have it. I think that perfectly demonstrates the power of the written word, so we’re going to go with that.
