Jack Archer is the new and improved TV Letterman!

Artist Jack Archer's TV Typeface time lapse film is amazing to see; he developed the idea to create an educational visual display using a grid of small television sets. To create this grid, Archer built a large shelf with sections perfectly sized for the tiny televisions. He than filled each slot with a set, and was left with a bitmap or grid of televisions. By shutting the screens on and off, Archer was able to create images out of the sets, and this allowed him to create his televised typography.

Archer filmed himself as he used the grid to spell out the entire alphabet, number and punctuation symbols. Jack Archer's TV typeface film is entertaining to see and could definitely be used for educational purposes.
