'Evolution of Type' was created by Andreas Scheiger and inspired by Frederic W. Goudy's book 'The Alphabets and Elements of Lettering.' The balance between words, letters and humanity is ever-changing and continues to evolve from one location to the next. In order to dissect language, why not dissect the letters?

Scheiger's 'Evolution of Type' is a literal operation on letters and the impact words have on society. The constant change of language is rendered artistically and figuratively by Scheiger, and these pieces are definite works of art. Stats for Surgical Alphabets Trending: Older & Chilly
