i've been trying to come up with one last pattern for my thesis project. one that embodies mystical symbols without being too literal and keeping the design simple and clean. and then i see this. this is what i was seeing in my head. this is the feel that i was trying for. this evokes the magical incantation. and it is called incantation and it was designed by alvin lustig in 1947. it's strange how we can imagine and desire something that we never knew existed.


  1. reminds me of a circuit board, although in 47 that didn't even exist. i do like, though!
