The typographic universe: letterforms found in nature, the built world and human imagination

Heller, Steven, author; Anderson, Gail, author

Virtually anything can be used to make original typography: flora, fauna, foodstuffs even mens underwear. What's more, once you start looking, it is impossible not to see letters everywhere, in natural, artificial and urban environments. A celebration of the world of letters, 'The Typographic Universe' features more than 300 examples of unusual letterforms, either created from non-traditional materials or found in unexpected places
