The Metamorphosis of type

I’m loving this book cover by Jamie Keenan, just featured over on Creative Review. He reworked an old Italian typeface, giving it more ‘curliness’ and legs to attain a “shiny black quality that beetles have and that weirdo, fiddly, twitchy thing that a lot creepy crawly things have, too.

This has already done the rounds, but I’m mesmerised by this brush so had to repost:  “All your down strokes are thick, all your up strokes are thin…snap to the right, up thin.”

Botanical Alphabet

Lovely work by Seth Mach of San Francisco. These were hand-patterned and then digitized. I like the ears of wheat. It would be nice to see some more well-recognised plant forms mixed with the abstract shapes.

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.

Jim Dingilian proves that a creative and skillful artist can create works of art with just about anything. By coating the interior of empty glass bottles with black smoke and then carefully brushing it away with tools mounted on dowels, he creates detailed and beautiful but dark works of smoke art that are dripping with a sense of suburban decay (via Bored Panda).

Wow.

That quality.
