   This file is a collection of some of the best ASCII art from The
Scarecrow's ASCII Art Archive 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0.  Here are some of the finest
examples of ASCII art that has been posted or emailed to me.

   I've included 'From:' lines to tell who emailed or posted the piece(s).
In many cases, the person who sends or posts the art is not the creator.
Unfortunately that information is sometimes lost.

   The sender's comments are in quotes.  My comments appear in brackets.
Anything else came as part of the art.  The various postings and archives have
been gathered and edited by The Scarecrow.

   Thanks to all of you who have emailed me with art to include.  Because
there are practical size limits for a file like this, there isn't room for
everything.  So I put in samplings from as many as possible.  Thanks again.

   Send comments, suggestions and ascii art to: boba_gagme_wwa_com
        ^^^^^^^^  ""''"""""""     ~~~~~~~~~
   Enjoy!

Scarecrow

"I'll tell a bit more of the 'comic-anti-hero' below. His Dutch name
is Guust Flater and he's drawed by a French or Belgium man (ohoh,
didn't do my homework very well...) called Franquin. His French name
is Gaston Gaffard (hope I got that right). I think Guust is slow, funny,
and sometimes very creative."
[The name is Gaston Lagaffe, and Franquin is from Belgium.  Thanks Frederic
Mora.]

[A blast from the past.  And a striking one too.  Wish I'd done it.]
"Swan and shadow by Adrienne Rich (1969)"


                Dusk
              above the
          water hang the
                    loud
                   flies
                   Here
                  O so
                 gray
                then
               what            A pale signal will appear
              when        Soon before its shadow fades
             where      Here in this pool of opened eye
            in us     No upon us As at the very edges
             of where we take shape in the dark air
              This object bares its image awakening
                ripples of recognition that will
                   brush darkness up into light
even after this bird this hour both drift byatop the perfect
sad instant now     already passing out of sight
                 toward yet-untroubled reflection
               this image bares its object darkening
              into memorial shades scattered bits of
            light      No of water Or something across
            water        Breaking up no being regathered
             soon          Yet by then a swan will have
              gone              yes out of mind into what
               vast
                pale
                 hush
                  of a
                  place
                   past
         sudden dark as
             if a swan
                sang
