Type face

Students of the very lovely Rina created these images from different fonts:









I think they're wonderful.


Post script: I hadn't realised that the day before I posted these, Lesley uploaded some similarly beautiful calligrammes from the early 20th century on her Words and Eggs literary blog. From the background information she provides, it looks as though the author, Guillaume Apollinaire, only lived to the age of 38.

I just posted on Apollinaire's "Calligrammes" yesterday... these remind me of him! We're on the same wavelength :)
