Tauba Auerbach

Alphabetized Bible, 2006

offset lithograph, Laser printed pages, cloth bound book, gold foil

8 in. x 6 in. x 1 1/2 in. (20.32 cm x 15.24 cm x 3.81 cm);

The Alphabetized Bible investigates the idea that any piece of writing, no matter its intellectual weight, is nothing more than a collection of letters.

Auerbach’s book reorders and presents all the characters in the King James Bible in alphabetical groupings, showing capital and lowercase instances in the order in which they appear in the original text. Some letters and sequences of letters appear more frequently than others, in some cases hundreds of times more than their counterparts.

As the artist describes it, “The intention of my work is to formally and conceptually break language down into its tiniest essential units, and apply the unique properties of the system to the system itself, subjecting it to its own idiosyncrasies and inconsistencies in remarkable patterns.”

This Universal Wrapping Paper isn’t just attractive, it contains a fantastic idea. Using the concept of a word puzzle, it allows the user to customize the paper for any required holiday. Such a brilliant idea by Fabio Militoand Francesca Guidotti.

90º by Iwona Przybyla

The book and the font style are called Kąt 90 stopni, which translates to 90 Degrees. To create each letter, Przybyla threaded light and dark blue string through two perpendicular sheets of paper, so that when each page is open to 90 degrees, a 3d letter will appear”

Made Up Stats Letterpress

Facts are usually true, so I never question anybody when they start referencing them. This collection of some of the most interesting facts in history come to you from the minds at Made Up Stats, which seems totally legit to me. The cards are available from Sapling Press’ etsy.
