The Bacon Alphabet addresses the American obsession with this porky delight and also references a bigger picture, the rather disgusting American diet.

Aside from the fact that actual pieces of bacon were used to create this delicious typography, the interesting part of this project is the use of medieval calligraphy as the chosen font. By employing this particular font, the Bacon Alphabet fools itself, as many American citizens do, about the health factor in such meat and other food choices.

Created by Brooklyn-based photographer Henry Hargreaves, the Bacon Alphabet also shows that bacon-inspired products are not going anywhere soon. The Bacon Alphabet demonstrates that artists and designers will continue to take this food to a whole new level. Stats for Plush Pork Typography Trending: Older & Warm
