If you're easily scared or squeamish, then the 'What Are You Afraid Of?' typography set just isn't for you. Each letter of the font is made up of a different nightmare inducer, and if you find yourself too shocked to go on by the letter "C", no one can blame you.

The freakish font set is the work of Nigerian American graphic designer Senongo Akpem, who painstakingly crafted the alphabet based on all of his own greatest personal fears. And he doesn't hold back either, referencing zombies, centipedes, amoebic dysentery and even alien abductions.

My favorite letter of the 'What Are You Afraid Of?' typography set is the letter "B" since it manages to capture a tapeworm in a beautiful, yet still oddly disturbing light.
