This image by Stefanie Posavec represents all of the sentences in On the Road by Jack Kerouac. Each line is organized according to the number of words per sentence, and the sentences are color-coded according to theme. This is only one of many killer infographics in Posavec’s Writing Without Words series in which she attempts to visually organize the language of books. Prints available.

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.
