Attention type lovers and street art aficionados: this may be just the book for you. Claudia Walde, author of Alfabeto Graffiti, spent over two years collecting alphabets by 154 street artists from 30 countries. The brief given to each artist was to “design all 26 letters of the Latin alphabet within the limits of a single page of the book.” The result: Alfabeto Graffiti.

Though I haven’t seen the actual book, the spreads on the publisher’s page look like the perfect combination of street art photos and fun (complementing) typography.

    Very cool. Its corollary, sort of, might be Evan Roth’s also-very-cool Graffiti Taxonomy, which was part of the MoMA’s Talk to Me exhibition, and can be seen (at least the Paris ones) here: http://evan-roth.com/graffiti-taxonomy-paris-info.php

    I think “complement” might be the better word, Art. Either way, nice post, CollabCrew.
