Type the Sky

Lisa Rienermann = love. I'm sure many of you already know about her, but I'm posting it nonetheless.

For one of her projects at the University of Duisburg-Essen, Rienermann created this alphabet made from the shapes building-tops make against the sky when she photographed them from below. She presented her alphabet in a book, Type the Sky. I'd love to have a copy, but I'm not sure it's for sale.

The only bummer about it is that she does admit to using photoshop to help tweak some of the letterforms. Still, I think she did a pretty fantastic job.

Download her portfolio pdf at her website for more interesting stuff, like this collection of photographs:
