In this toolbox you will find helpful tips for digital typography. For those of you new to the topic, let's start with a short explanation

Creating a Beautiful Fractal ImageThere are so many beautiful fractal images in the art world...
...and the ones here at Deviant Art are no exception! The images are as diverse as each person who creates it. I am a lay-person on the subject when it comes to explaining the art itself.

The air was also sluggishly heavy, dulling the senses to a slowly-blended calm engendered by the heat of St. Othniel's southerly climate.
At length, after much stimulating conversation, Christopher stood, producing a book of sheet music.
"What do you all say to a bit of music?" he asked.
