Alphabetical: Experimental Typography by Dan Tobin Smith

“Alphabetical” is an ongoing experimental project that explores typography and perspective using trompe l’oeil techniques.

The photographer Dan Tobin Smith explains:

“The project makes use of anamorphosis, or distorted projection to create the forms. This is a technique which dates back to the Renaissance and found one of its first uses in photography with an image called ‘The Human U.S. Shield’ made in 1913, which shows a staggering 30,000 officers and men of Camp Cluster forming an enormous U.S. Shield.”
