T4:2/12 Llansawel Pontypridd

The T4 set promises to be easier to decipher than the other sets – there are 12 signs of the Zodiac, and they might even be in order, because this one – Taurus the Bull – is number 2 of 12, and it’s the second in the Zodiac sequence.

I don’t think there’s much else of significance in the graphics, apart from the ubiquitous CH→, Charlie Harrow’s signature.

The text for the Zodiac disks is arranged in a pentagon, 5 lines with 6 characters per line, making 30 characters, giving a total of 30 times 12, or 360 characters. Having said that, we’ve already seen that there’s a reasonable amount of redundancy and repetition (for some reason), but we would hope to get at least a limerick or haiku out of 360 characters!

Starting at the top right:

The bottom line has to be flipped to make sense:

These lines resist arrangement at the moment, although the slash probably indicates a line break in the final poem (if it is a poem):

our era, s...

The little pentagon at the bottom holds the letter “f”.
