Simple enough ....
Type your message into a program that produces scrambled, distorted, overlapping random fonts - but still legible to a human - and outputs it as a monochrome bitmap.
Compress the bitmap. Encrypt the resultant file, or employ steganography. Send it to the recipient, who reverses
the process and extracts the image.
The advantage is that there is no "plain text" to recover. Even if the message is intercepted, brute-force analysis will not result in text that can be pattern-matched against dictionaries; the image only makes "sense" when interpreted via human vision.
