I spent a few hours today looking at stereograms – relevatory news to me. After that I decided to put together my own one for a flyer Jay from Sapphire Mansions asked me to do for an upcoming Slumberland showcase in New York. It’s based on an idea from the wiki entry on ASCII stereograms, and is an example of stereograms based on cross-eyed stereo viewing. That means you focus in front of the image, as opposed to wide-eyed stereo where you need to focus behind the image. When you focus correctly the two columns will blend into one and the ‘secret code’ appears. I’m quite amazed I actually got it to work. Don’t get up from the chair too quickly after at looking at this for a while!
It only works for monospaced type, so I used Interstate here.
