language+art+design=re-inventive storytelling: I Saw a Peacock with a Fiery Tail | Brain Pickings

here is a fantastic and quite simple example of
BEAUTIFUL re-inventive storytelling:

17th-Century British “Trick” Poetry Meets Die-Cut

read in a straightforward manner
and it sounds interestingly surreal
but if the lines are broken up in the middle
everything falls into place

.

in this version of the classic poem
language, art and design
come together
to play with these inversions
they reveal and 
they conceal,
brilliantly mirroring 
the shifting ways
in which poetry
creates meaning
.
i love this kind of writing
the cadence, the texture, the imagery
to see it so beautifully & cleverly illustrated & presented
is simply sublime to me.

.
for the young, and the young-at-heart

i thought you would enjoy reading and sharing the video with your loved ones
