Pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism spelled out in alphabet paper clips

There’s nothing much to say about these alphabet paper clips. They are simply elegant. I admire the way the Roman alphabet is cut into the curlicue of the inside bend. These are expensive paper clips, though: they are almost 18 bucks a sheet. The word in the title would cost you a thousand dollars to spell.

    Ditto No 1′s comment. Wish I’d read it before I wasted time trying to work it out for myself.

    It was only once I had visited the website and started my calculations that I started to wonder…why would you *want* to spell Pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism in paperclips…. I mean, how many paper clips can a set of papers use, and if you were going to waste $80 on saying Pseudopseudohypoparathyroidism, why would you want to do it in paperclips.

    Maybe the answer is… because you can. Probably that makes it a piece of conceptual art, which arguably you *might* be able to sell for more than $80… so it could actually cost nothing or even make you money. Maybe.

    Who does your math?
    I count no more than 4 of any letter (although I wasn’t thorough), and a sheet has one of each letter, so it’d cost you $80, not $1k.
