Rikchik Postscript files
These are a few postscript files I use to
generate professional-looking Rikchik paper documents.
I will occasionally get ahead of myself in either these or the
gifs used by the web graphics, so there might be symbols
in one that are not available in the other. I have also provided
PDF versions of the pages with content, by request.
- rikchik.ps is just definitions of all
the current glyphs, forms, relations, and collectors. To create a new
document I start with this and add content at the end.
- poster.ps (poster.pdf)
is a one-page poster/article about the creation of the rikchik language,
by me, in Rikchik. It's a good example of how to use rikchik.ps.
(reference.pdf) is a chart of all current
glyphs, relations, forms, and collectors. It makes a good reference sheet.
- iluvrik.ps (iluvrik.pdf)
is an "I <heart> Rikchik" button, done in response to a
CONLANG challenge to do such things. It's pretty silly.
is a familiar advertisement translated by my brother Marc
(aka Spot-N-Quality-0 Human-R-End-1). It's pretty silly.
is a bit of rikchik vaudeville by Marc. It is of course silly, and
he's threatening to do more -(o- . Note that the second panel is
below the first one.
was put up to answer a question by Allan C. Wechsler: how are a rikchik's
tentacles rooted on its globe, and what tentacles are used for what
part of a word? This diagram, looking up from below, should clarify
is a bit of Rikchik Art Nouveau, inspired by Alfons Mucha and
Louis Comfort Tiffany.
is a rikchik compass rose - east is at the bottom, and the numbers
inside the circle are rikchik degrees - 420 degrees in a circle, moving
clockwise from east. Rikchiks use 12 directions - "Northern East" is
1/12 of a circle from "Eastern North". The stationary direction, Sleep,
is in the center.
