This illustrated typeface by Stuart Whitton is epic. If you look at each article of clothing in this series, what you’ll find is that, in addition to being masterfully drawn using only a pencil, they actually form the shapes of each letter in the alphabet.

Not surprisingly, Stuart Whitton calls this series ‘Alphabet,’ and he raids his entire closet to find the perfect piece of apparel to articulate the shapes of each letter. It’s apparent that finding 26 different items of clothing becomes a daunting task as Whitton resorts to an umbrella for the letter J, but the skilled artist has literally exhausted his options using anything from jeans and blazers to socks and ties, so an umbrella will have to do.

In an age filled with digital art, it’s actually refreshing to see someone render photoreal images using only analog tools and media.
