The Lamed Wuniks **process**
That's the lamed wufniks, right there. Amazingly, all 36 fit perfectly onto one sheet of copper. I was tempted to leave them there, they fit so well, and so put this sheet aside while working on kafka's critter. in the end, though, there was no reason for them to be in a rectangular sheet, and I decided to cut them up. Aren't they sort of lovely, though, like this?
