I stumbled on this while looking up designs to add to my Advanced Design Practice module. It's something that should be documented and sat in wonder at.
This alphabet designed by Stuart Whitton is a great way of using found objects to make your own type. Granted you see this alot. What makes this stand out is that it is infact pencil drawings of said found objects. Painstaking genious.
Some letters are left deliberately unfinished to better show the form of the letter. See each individual letters here.
