Marc Bottler Uses Depth-of-Field to Create Fantastic Fonts

Typography is slowly becoming more and more of an art form on its own rather than a creative extension of a project bigger than itself; just take the work of Marc Bottler as an example. His latest font creation uses optical illusions to make it stand out. Although Marc Bottler's unique typography wouldn't be of much use in some kind of design, its 3-D perception might inspire other fonts to embrace this type of depth-of-field.

Simple yet effective, Marc Bottler's technique involves using what appears to be toy blocks to create letters. One half of these blocks rest flat while the other half stand tall. When shot at the right angle, the result is one uniform letter from the alphabet. Pretty clever, Marc Bottler.
