Very nice alphabet, Ptak! Glad to see Gargantua and Pantagruel in prominent spots.
You will have to forgive the excess in the comment we posted last night, Ptak. Rabelais had too much to drink and got the upper hand. I will write a more civilized response on our blog this week.
The two striking omissions from the 50s notion of colossal for us dear Ptak are green-sauce sensuality and gut-giggling foolishness. Beyond that: The colossal TV, cigarettes and liquor wreak of arrogance. And all orifices are sterile with the prophylactics of propaganda. This world is constipated: no room for the renewal that comes from a really good shit or a merry, slippery round of the two-backed beast.
I love the chess set, John. Though I have an uncle who is a champion chess player, I prefer chess as a metaphor and am fascinated by how it has been used by various artists from Ingmar Bergman in the Seventh Seal to Lewis Caroll in Alice in Wonderland to you in your fabulous folk concoction pitting great physicians against great mathemeticians. There is a fabulous chess café here in Montréal called Pi (the mathematical symbol that is, which I cannot find on my keyboard at the moment). It is a place you would like, I am sure. Keep posting interesting stuff like this. I get alot of out it. Cheers, Jenny for @Rabelaisandme ([email protected])
