Artificial Typography


v0 — Summer 2022


What if Noguchi sculpted the letter N?
Or Hilma af Klint painted her own initial?

This limited edition book is an unexpected A to Z in typography and the history of art, imagined by an AI.

A visual journey of a conversation with cutting-edge AI engine, MidJourney. Letterforms were generated as if the artist themselves had done it, and re-imagining what a letterform can be in the process. For example, the AI was prompted with: “Letter B by Louise Bourgeois, crochet”.

Our role as designers shifted from creator to curator and provoker through language.

The book contains 52 artists, and 26 letters, and it is a physical manifestation of a deeply digital process.
