Mysteries of the Alphabet
Book, 22”x34.6”, Offset Print on Elefantenhaut Paper
 
This is a book about the Alphabet. The design features the uniqueness of ‘two books in one.’ Book A shows the blur typefaces whose design was inspired by a Garamond italic, followed by Book B, which tells the stories related to each Alphabet letter. The reason I made this book was to see the potential transformation possibilities of the alphabet by tracing back to its origin.   On the front side, I researched how each letter has evolved, and then on the back side I meant to show the alphabet has unlimited, potential, flexible forms through the blur typefaces. I intentionally used Garamond italic as a base typeface here since it has one of the longest and most renovated histories.
