Descripción

Virtually anything can be used to make original typography: flora, fauna, foodstuffs - even men's underwear. What's more, once you start looking, it is impossible not to see letters everywhere, in natural, artificial and urban environments. A celebration of the world of letters, The Typographic Universe features more than 300 examples of unusual letterforms, either created from non-traditional materials or found in unexpected places. From deliberate inventions - aromatic alphabets made of spaghetti, soup or spices, or contorted typefaces styled out of human handprints - to serendipitous and often short-lived discoveries - letters formed by chemtrails in the sky, by negative spaces between trees branches and city buildings, or by cracks in plaster - to fading `ghost types' painted on buildings in a pre-digital age, this typographic scavenger hunt will excite and inspire graphic designers, typographers and anyone who shares the current popular fascination with the wonderful world of typography.
