Does anyone know of an LJ community which revolves also around how words -look-?

(I'm into both by the way, and plan to make more posts like my 'Delineate' one as time moves forward)

If not, but you are also interested in such a thing, I created one (before finding this place) as experiment I suppose and would be happy to share the link with anybody interested...

Thanks in advance,
Dave

Well, you can see a prototype of how such an idea might fly here:

sexynamesnwords

As those of us who enjoy this concept come together we can decide if we want this to be how/where we congregate or if we'd like to do stuff some other way entirely...

Re: Different Fonts...

That is an excellent question... I guess this depends on the person, and though I do have some rather strong font preferences, most of the words I love really do do well for me in most fonts...

In some ways I guess this is about seeing words "in their natural habitat". When I enjoy a particular instance of a word, I take pictures and show her off...

The other thing I did was throw names in along with words... On a comm such as this one (and others), people are very "definition centric"... Perhaps less so there... Many names are words/do have meanings, and what's a word but a name for a concept? So using one place for both can be worth considering...

Thanks For your positive comments... I need to find likeminded people and to produce something 'who lives on'. If you don't like how I went about something, we can talk until we get the concept right...
