Paper Alphabet for Sculpture Today

October 13, 2010

Christopher Jobson

From the AIGA Archives, a beautiful alphabet designed by Sonya Dyakova for Phaidon in 2007.

The alphabet sprung from wanting to highlight what makes sculpture different from other art forms. By cutting and folding a flat sheet of paper, a three-dimensional alphabet was devised. A considerable amount of effort went into crafting and arranging the letterforms, each one playfully varying in shape, the depth remaining constant.

The legibility of the type is greatly influenced by the angle from which it is viewed. When viewed directly from above, the edges of the paper create outlines, making the letterforms easy to read.
