I have to admit that the previous post on Christmas is actually not much fun. Today I received another pResent from Yixuan which is more interesting:

Basically the code deals with letter polygons (i.e. glyphs) and plot them with proper projections from 3D to 2D space:

## in the 'fun' package (currently on R-Forge),

Thanks, Yixuan!

By the way, there are even more interesting demos in the fun package, just install the package by install.packages('fun', repos = 'http://r-forge.r-project.org') to see demo(package = 'fun')$results[, 'Item'].
