Eric Gill once said "Letters are things, not pictures of things", stressing the intimate bond between typography and the physical world. Daniel Adolph of German design bureau 0c/0m/0y/0k and Düsseldorf based graphic collaboration with Alex Klug Royal Grafico inverted this relationship.

The alphabet which exists solely as images has ignited the imagination and earned the admiration of bloggers all over the world.
