Being fascinated with how prime spirals look, I tried another layout for primes. Starting at the upper left and writing out numbers like a normal text, starting at 𝟢 and coloring every prime number red, every other number white, this is the result.

It is interesting, that — like in prime spirals — the red squares form visible patterns. Randomly assigned squares would not as often form such patterns.
