“A calligram is text arranged in such a way that it forms a thematically related image.
It can be a poem, a phrase, or a single word.”  Source: Wikipedia

When Mirjam is making a calligram, she writes hundreds of times words, a text or a name, to form and create an image. She write them tiny, but still readable. Making an image of an butterfly by writing repeatedly the word ´Marisposa´ (Spanish for butterfly). But also Calligrams are possible, with the names of persons, a newborn baby or a loving couple.

Look how she made the wedding hearts, by writing the names in red and black. Each heart consists a name, written numerous times. In the black heart the name of ‘him’ and in the red heart the name of ‘her’. Another example to show you are the tiny baby feet. Written the name in black and blue (for a boy) or pink (for a girl) to make the sweet calligram complete.
