Jason Booher’s cover re-design of To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
“A little straightforward but visually arresting. The hanging body position with dangling legs connects the “killing” to the idea of lynching. The letters drawn by my daughter (who is 6) around the dead bird bring the conflict of the children of the book encountering this adult reality. As well as suggest a non traditional childhood logic—this is how Sadie used to write words and sentences where they just fill the space you have and you move on to the next line or space not really worrying if the words break up strangely.” -Jason Booher

Typeframe: Render vs. Cardboard

OK, now I give up. After seeing so many extraordinary, life-like 3D type models I had assumed this beautifully complex ‘a’ was of the same mould. But no. This character has actually been constructed physically. It’s made me realise that the line between 3D rendered graphic shapes and real constructed shapes is now imperceptible.

This Bodoni ‘a’ is part of a personal project called Typeframe by Gerard Miró of Lo Siento a Design Studio based in Barcelona, Spain. The ‘internal structure’ of the character has been constructed from cardboard “undressing the letter to show its skeleton”.

Liquid Calligraphy by Ruslan Khasanov.

I love the ephemeral brevity of these letterforms! I think these impressive lettering animations have been knocking around for a couple of years now, but I’ve only just become aware of them.

There’s more of this lovely set over at ruskhasanov.com.
