You're probably holding my business card right now. The writing in the star is a perl program that outputs the entire card in postscript, including the star of code. Click the image above for a bigger, almost legible version, or get the postscript version
The condensed code is here. This is the version that you see on the card. It's about 1945 characters long. I did not attempt to make the code as short as possible. Whenever it was getting too long for the shape, I'd adjust the shape parameters and compress the code a little more.
The verbose code is here. This version first strips itself to become the condensed version, and then outputs the postscript. The condensed and verbose versions output the same postscript. The full version is about 4241 characters (152 lines) long.
