We’ve featured the Typographical Dissections and Evolution of Type work by Vienna based designer, Andreas Scheiger, before on Street Anatomy. So I was excited to see Andreas’ latest Evolution of Type where he actually sculpts fossil letters, excavates them, and puts them on display museum style.  It’s a faux-archeological look at typography with each letter carefully constructed with chicken bones, plasticine, wood, gypsum, and water colors.

Andreas Scheiger interpretes letters as organisms and typefaces as species, all classified similar to biological taxonomy. Each letter displays the anatomical features and evolutionary characteristics shared by so many living creatures. —Glandis.com
