At the beginning of 2023 I finally managed to make a bot which I called glyphbot.
The bot generates a randomised typographic prompt and sends it to the DALL-E API.
DALL-E should then return four images, the bot posts one of these to the server (on Mastodon), so it should be interminably online.
You can see some examples the bot has made with the corresponding prompts below.
The letter S, in a gothic script font, on a cream coloured background
The letters F and y, on top of one another, in a serif font, on a pink coloured background
A malformed letter V, on a yellow coloured background
The letter d in pixelated font
WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE A PART OF THIS PROJECT?
I am putting together a book and I am inviting people to send me typographic prompts to be fed into the bot.
If I like what I receive it will be featured in the book in some way or other.
Don't let my attempts limit you, be as creative as you like.
You can add your name, email and any comments if you want, but only the prompt is mandatory (but if you want a name credit in the book then you will need to supply this)
We never disclose email addresses to third parties.
