Block Type Experiment

OK this is the last physical typography project for awhile, I promise. At first glance these wooden letters appear to be nothing more than a few blocks organized on a table to create a standard alphabet. However the letters are actually illusions of perspective, viewable only from the photographed angle, certain elements stacked high while others layered below are actually far in the background. Designed and photographed by Marc Böttler, see the full alphabet here. Neat! See also Jérôme Haldemann’s toothpick type project for a similar idea. (via ignant)
