I'm off in about 2 hours to Chicago for the annual AIA/APA ( Archaeological Institute of America/ American Philological Association) meetings. If you are there, swing by our booth and take a look. We have a new banner that we will be using. Andy ran across some photo-mosaic software last year, and we have been playing around with various ideas.

Just for the fun of it, we did a photo-mosaic of me. Here is the original picture:

Note how I am surrounded by books. Here is the photomosaic, using 1,860 book covers:

OK, not the best resolution, but we didn't want to overload your browser. The banner we made has over 5 times as many book covers (about 9800) and weighs in at around 100 Mb! Wondering what each of the covers is? Go here and hover the mouse over the various covers. It might take a few seconds for the server to catch up, depending on your connection.

I will post pictures from the conference, so you can get an idea of what the banner looks like. I think it's pretty neat :)

Here is a picture of the banner coming off the printer
