Would you rather that digital type was not anti-aliased (smoothed out) for better visual consumption? Are you tired of slick, vector graphics? Do you want some typographic realism back on your monitor? Then pixelhugger.com, an altar to the digital square, an homage to the building block of raster images, a respite from Flash, is the site for you. At PixelHugger you can play pixel games, like pixelInvaders, or download pixel desktops, icons, and fonts. There is even an application that converts pixel-based images to ASCII text. Check out the online gallery of uploaded images. If Mondrian were a digital artist, PixelHugger would be in his browser's bookmarks. --Brooke Singer
