>Who is that Hero? Shy?

Aziz, deleted - is part of a series I'm working on which speaks of the destruction, deconstruction and reconstruction of the written word. It may appear stupidly simple - but it ain't.

This is a great thread, nice question stephen - I see some familiar names who have/do inspire me, and some new ones too.

a little avant-weird, but Jan Svankmajer's films make rather extensive use of typography in fairly unprecedented ways..

I don't know if you classify this as art, but it's brilliant stuff.

One of my favorites is the Italian futurist Fortunato DePero whose work you can see, at among other places, here.

Our ampersand poster could be considered an art project. » Contains video «

No apologies for the blatant self-promotion.

Last week I saw Marian Bantjes presentation at the TDC.

Her work is not only wonderfully imaginative and artistically superb, but it just makes you feel happier, like the old Beatles music. A rare treasure and pleasure.

I say this periodically: Bantjes is the messiah of PoMo.
So unlike the hooligans of the 90s.

My work is very typographic - I hand carve linoleum alphabets and print with them on fabric dishtowels, shirts and bolts of fabric. I have an installation hanging in the DeCordova Museum in Lincoln Massachusetts:

hi guys
Please this is urgent!

Does anyone know if the Kufi Ayah posted on this sheet is copy written? I mean can I use it in one of my designs?

I would highly appreciate a quick answer!
