I think the “before and after” photos are particularly interesting.

This is really great. All the letters have been replaced by similar characters. Reading it slowly, word by word, can be difficult. Reading it quickly is much easier. I’d bet that someone who isn’t as familiar with English would have a much more difficult time reading this than a native reader.
