A few Kindle wallpapers

29 December 2012

I tried my hand at Kindle screensaver wallpapers for the first time.

Kindle wallpaper: A Horn of Gallehus, with one of the earliest runic inscriptions

Kindle wallpaper: Runic metal stamps

Kindle wallpaper: Japanese movable type with Chinese characters

Kindle wallpaper: Japanese movable type box with Chinese characters

Kindle wallpaper: Movable type Rubik’s cube with Chinese characters by Shaun Chung

These are intended for 16 shades of gray, 800×600 screens. They look darker on the device!
