Alida Rosie Sayer graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2009 and by the following year had her first solo exhibition. Layering hundreds of carefully sliced screen prints, Sayer creates three-dimensional typographic forms in this series entitled There is no why using quotes from Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse Five.

The series of seven three-dimensional typographic illustrations were shown in their entirety at a solo exhibition titled ‘There is no why’ at Marsden Woo Project Space, Marsden Woo Gallery (London) in June – July 2010. Each piece has been made without any digital processes: every sheet printed using traditional techniques, such as letterpress or screen-printing, and cut or constructed completely by hand.

Really incredible stuff. See also her beautifully sculpted atlas. All images copyright Alida Sayer. (via it’s nice that)
