Alphabetical: Experimental Typography by Dan Tobin Smith

Published Nov 16, 2012

“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.”
