Here’s something different than all those ASCII-conversions… Made 41 years ago. Instead of just using single characters, Sam Harbison printed several text characters on top of eachother to increase the quality. So it sort of relates to those diacriticisms by Glitchr & Mammifero, PLATO emoticons & Goa Brudbilder.

And how about that process?
