When presented with a stray piece of paper my reflex is unfailingly to attempt an origami vagina (surprisingly difficult) so I feel that Marianne Beck’s recent undertaking is especially admirable. The Danish-born, Paris-based designer was able to create an entire typeface out of neatly overlapped paper using a few scraps and some clever folds, in an uncommonly cohesive and well executed series.
Perhaps even more surprising is the fact that this project has been relegated to a sweet site called Serendipity Graphic World, which is described as “a place for self-initiated projects, happy accidents, unexpected discoveries, projects of pure decoration, forgotten or rejected sketches or work in process.” It’s a treasure trove, and we’re very happy to have stumbled across it.
