A calligram is a poem, phrase, or word in which the typeface, calligraphy or handwriting is arranged in a way that creates a visual image.
Ever since I read Jabberwocky , a nonsense poem written by Lewis Caroll in his 1871 novel Through the Looking-Glass, I have been intrigued by it.
For this week’s “a-z word challenge” the word was J, so here I am with a calligrame of Jabberwocky, I borrowed the words from Lewis Caroll’s poem.
The poem goes like this:
‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
“Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!”
