I’m a sucker for physical type, and this project is no exception. Design student Erik Berger made this fun typeface out of a pound of rubber bands. (via typegoodness)

Brooklyn-based artist Meg Hitchock dissects religious texts such as the Bible, Koran, and Torah and uses the individual letters to create maddeningly complex, interwoven collages of typography. Via her artist statement:

In my series Mantras & Meditations, I examine and deconstruct the word of God as interpreted through the world religions. I select passages from holy books and cut the letters from one passage to form the text of another. For example, I may cut up a passage from the Old Testament of the Bible and reassemble it as a passage from the Bhagavad Gita, or I may use type from the Torah to recreate an ancient Tantric text. A continuous line of text forms the words and sentences in a run-on manner, without spaces or punctuation, creating a visual mantra of devotion.

In her most recent work at Famous Accountants Hitchcock spent 135 hours transcribing (gluing tens of thousands of letters, ahem) the entire Book of Revelation, the last book of the Christian New Testament, but with text cut out from an English translation of the Koran. And if 135 hours seems like a lot, she began cutting the individual letters for the installation almost six months before its opening. The text ran across gallery walls and floors like an endless rope of words. See video of that piece as well as a brief interview here:

I can’t decide if I’m more impressed with her artwork or simply what must be her incredible patience. See more of her work here. (via hyperallergic)

Swiss design student Jérôme Haldemann was given the class assignment of creating a font based on an animal theme. The animal he received at random: a hedgehog. Behold his prickly, three-dimensional interpretation of Bodoni: TYPICK. Thanks Jérôme for sharing your work with Colossal!

New work from artist Guildor who set these foam phrases afloat in public river-ways in Milan and Treviso. In order they read “happiness happens” and “think thoughtless” (and “love”). (via juxtapoz and wooster)
