Hi all,

I am trying to reproduce this effect -
http://www.shlomifish.org/art/bk2hp/ -
that I originally did in Corel-DRAW using Inkscape. Now, for that I used
an
envelope effect that construed the text like so:

-----------------------
\                     |
 \                    |
  |                   |
 /                    |
/                     |
-----------------------

And later on applied perspective. However, when I attempt to do it using
Inkscape, I get some deformation/mutation at the top and bottom like so
-

I've been considering to implement my own transformation on the points
of the
path using this equation -

,

but I hope to avoid it. Can anyone give me any leads?
