How to spell the alphabet

26 year old Tauba Auerbach uses ink and pen to create witty and detailed letterforms and typographic posters. A recent graduate of Stanford University, Auerbach works as a sign painter in San Francisco, in a shop devoted to the traditional practice of hand lettering. Her simple yet complex illustrated posters deconstruct typography into their simple graphic elements, recognizable as letters, but lost as communication. Her elaborate calligraphic letterforms also maintain the complex scrolling flourishes of calligraphy, yet lose their connection to actual letters. Beautiful.
