    Alex Fuller: Two Letter Words

Alex Fuller glorifies the humble two-letter word in a new book

Posted by James Cartwright,

I make no secret of being an absolute sucker for a simple, well-executed idea so hopefully you won’t be too surprised by just how simple this latest project from Alex Fuller really is. The New York creative all-rounder has just produced this miniature tome, Two Letter Words, that examines the abstract qualities of (surprise!) two letter words, taking those ubiquitous linguistic shapes and using them to make unique marks on paper. Printed in red and blue to make the intersections between letterforms abundantly clear, it’s a truly satisfying way to look at shapes we interpret as language almost innately in a fresh, purely aesthetic context.
