CART 365 – DB1

Description

1.0
Create a 64 px x 64 px picture of yourself.

Save it in .gif format. Look in”<lastname,firstname>.gif”. Look in ClassShares/CART345_jason_12/public.html/students to see how your image file is named; name your new picture the same. Upload the picture to that same directory, replacing the image file already there. Your picture should now show up when you load the student page of the class website. (If it does not, check to ensure that you followed the naming format exactly.)

Take my “Pretty Jesus ” or Bringhurst’s “these poems” or Niatum’s “The Art of Clay“(section 3.1, p. 25 of .pdf). Create three different typographic treatments of the selected poem, each of which represent three different ways of reading or responding to the poem. You can manipulate other aspects of the ap¨pearance as well, if you wish. For each setting, write a very short description that explains your treatment.
