Typatomy.

‘The Evolution of Type’ is a project by Andreas Scheiger inspired by Goudy’s 1918 book “The Alphabet and Elements of Lettering”. In this project Scheiger’s aim was to ‘open up’ forms of lettering and portray how they are very similar to the human race. He describes this in the way that they have been a form since we can remember similarly to ourselves and thus have a history which is to be explored. The pieces are very well presented and reach the artists aim of representing letterforms as a human being.
