Typography and art
Since I'm a graphic designer, I've always been in love with typography. What a true joy seeing the portraits done by Roberto de Vicq DeCumptich. He had put together a website called Bembo's Zoo. What a fun site! Each letter of the alphabet sits on your screen. As you click each letter, an animal drawing is created before your eyes using only typography/letterforms as the medium. It's fun to watch and is so inspirational. He also worked on the book Words at Play creating portraits of prominent authors in this same way. All images shown here are by the artist.
Fascinating stuff! I hope you like it too. Happy Tuesday!
