  • Different mediums, styles, and languages, including imaginary ones, show the endless potential and inspiration of turning letters into art.
  • Each artist featured has a brief bio explaining their background and inspirations, examples of their artwork, and an original alphabet.
  • The artists share alphabets in vibrant color and black and white, in clarity and in chaos, in pencil on paper and paint on walls.
