Graphic artist and sculptor Andreas Scheiger came across the book “The Alphabet and Elements of Lettering” (1918) by famous type designer Frederic W. Goudy, which analyzes the alphabet and compares letters to human organisms. Goudy compared letters are organisms and typefaces to species and classified them similar to biological taxonomy. Scheiger was fascinated by this notion and decided to translate the idea into a literal representation, seen in his Evolution of Type series.
