Tauba Auerbach’s book How to Spell the Alphabet is one of the top of my wishlist. She approaches language in clever executions that are extremely entertaining and great to look at. The above image is the alphabet done in semaphore (flag positions represent letters). Not to mention her amazing paintings of letterforms.

    Yes, Jangalekat. These letterforms were actually exhibited in an art gallery that often shows works of graffiti art. http://www.newimageartgallery.com
