4/9/10: Romance of the Three Kingdoms Wordles (Wallpaper)

Unread postby James » Fri Apr 09, 2010 5:53 pm

Just for fun—have you ever played with Wordle? Well, we have, at Scholars of Shen Zhou, and you are welcome to view our collection of Romance of the Three Kingdoms Wordles and participate in the discussion or share your own. Wordle, by the way, is a site where you can create an artistic mesh of words, sized by prominence and colored to a theme, based on any sort of textual input (including websites). We’ve been creating Wordles with text from Luo Guanzhong’s Romance of the Three Kingdoms (read online; book selection guide).

In addition to the Wordles being shared in our forum, I’ve created a special Wordle using the entire contents of the novel. I had a lot of fun with colors and word placement. I’ve added it to our wallpaper section in high-resolution in two forms, colored and ‘paper’-themed. More information is available in the download. I’ve saved my original creation online, at Wordle’s site, so you can create your own Romance of the Three Kingdoms Wordle based on the novel’s text.
