Fossil Typography

Andreas Scheiger hat einen neuen Teil seiner „Evolution of Type“-Serie veröffentlicht, diesmal hat er Typo-Fossilien aus Gips und Hühnchenknochen gemacht.

I remember that in primary school we tinkered "our own fossil" with gypsum, leaves and twigs. With a little bit of technical refinement I managed to recreate fossilized letters for the ongoing project "Evolution of Type". Basically all it takes is much plasticine as a mold, a flat wooden letter, some stones for the fossil´s surface and some chicken bones.

Evolution of Type, Exhibits 22-26, ein kleines Making-Of gibt's in seinem Blog: Letter Fossils (via My Modern Metropolis)
