I love this story so much and this is just....wow. I have trouble finding words to say how awesome I think this is. But, I do love how the tree is done.

Simply fascinating.

This is awesome! Not only is the text very artfully nested (ha, ironic) and stuff, but the color contrast really brings to light the poem's words themselves. "The Raven" is my all-time favorite poem, and it was neat to see my favorite line "Presently my soul grew stronger, hesitating then no longer" in such an artful piece. Serious kudos!

Hello! :D I was wonderong, do you mind if I print this off and stick it in a sketch book for school? It will help me get marks in my A Level Art in College. I'm studying art with text/created by text and this would look really awesome...If I can don't worry, I'll give you credit for it and everything - no one would think that I created this sort of art anyway. I've never attempted Typeography in my life :XD:
Thank you for your time :)
