Example of London Gift
London gift is a generative 'tiler' artwork. It takes a colored set of tiles and creates abstract art by piecing them together in patterns.
The relative rarity of each gift is largely represented by the rarity attribute on each NFT. Each rarity maps to a set of unique tile sets. This gives each rarity a relatively unique visual style.
Names are generated from a word bank of fun and random words to create crypto, but poetic names of each NFT. Along with 'tile sets', the name of each NFT is a key expression of rarity. Some are pseudo-generated and a select few are hand written.

The complexity of the NFT (how dense are the tiles packed into the image) is also distributed via weights. Generally, the more complex the NFT, the rarer it is, with an exception for the 'minimal' complexity.
For the detailed collectors, you will also notice the composition attribute which have three states: 'normal', 'repeat', 'random'. These attributes are distributed evenly and produce a subtle change to how the tiling algorithm works.
Normal - the default setting of tiling, the other two attributes augment the art with 'Normal' as the baseline.
Repeat - the tiling algorithm will favor creating consistently repeating visual patterns and tile permutations.
Random - relative to Normal, this setting will prefer net unique patterns and create the most 'abstract' pieces.
The effect of composition is especially subtle, with some tile sets expressing it more strongly than others.
Can you tell the difference? (normal, repeat, random)
Finally, the framed attribute, as the name implies frames the artwork with a border. Only about 10% of the collection is NOT framed.
