Welcome to A journey into Letter Space

Embark on a journey into the inner space of letters. Following up on their previous typography inspired suites “Hot Type in a Cold Setting” and “Love You to the Letter” the artists now leave the physical shapes of the letters behind, to explore what lays in between each individual character.

The secret to type design lays in the space in between, the space defines the letter and creates it’s specific personality. It is also in the leap from letter to letter where the reading and understanding of sentences takes place. Welcome to “A Journey Into Letter Space”.
