    Yuko Michishita: The A to Z of Iran

Yuko Michishita takes you through the A to Z of Iran in a refreshingly beautiful way

Posted by Anya Lawrence,

When The New Statesman set about writing the article A to Z of Iran, it’s not at first glance something you’d think goes hand-in-hand with beautiful typography. But that is exactly where the talented illustrator and typography extraordinaire, Yuko Michishita came in, and didn’t she do it well.

With each letter of the alphabet beautifully designed in a historical Persian style, the visuals are a triumph of subtle artistic flair. Yuko’s other work is beautiful too. Ranging from intricately decorative plates and cups made for the stylish boutique Liberty, to experimental photography and no-end of illustrative typography, her natural talent and eye for composition stands out throughout her work.
