Description: Writers weave words into poems and stories to create their literary works. Here this concept has been taken literally, with sentences describing how words are woven into written language and stored in the cultural baskets of humanity. These phrases were lettered in different styles and sizes to symbolise the variations and diverse mix of genre we find in our literary texts. These strands were then woven into a unified intertwined whole, with some black areas representing the gems of literature from past civilisations now lost.
