So, there was this eighteenth century Italian artist named Piranesi, who was really famous for his etchings of Rome. And among other things, he also did a set of etchings called the Carceri d'Invenzione, or Imaginary Prisons. I know that sounds a bit creepy, and they are, but they're also beautiful and interesting and a bit reminiscent of M.C. Escher. And you know what else? Etchings convert to Kindle really well.

I've uploaded them here<http://redeemingqualities.wordpress.com/2009/01/13/piranesis-carcerikindle-screensavers/> at my blog. Take a look. They're pretty cool.

Interesting timing. My father died recently and he owns(ed) 3 of these Prison series of etchings. Not the ones you have used. All of his artwork is in the process of being appraised. He was an architect & designer (of some reputation) hence his interest in these etchings.

Great stuff but quite "dark".
