Someday, hopefully an intrepid computer designer will convert these crazy letters made by Austrian artist Andreas Scheiger into a font. Talk about taking “the living word” to a whole other (grosser) level.
What’s inside a letter when you cut it open? Vascular tissue, tendons, and vertebrae, naturally. Each of these letters starts out as a hunk of wood which Scheiger slices up before adding anatomical details. (Click here to see the step-by-step process.) The results are beautiful, but, uhhh, it really makes you wonder what kind of person gets the weird urge to simulate dissection. It’s almost surgical porn. What the heck are they putting in the water in Austria and how do I get some of it? [Grafiches Labor via Buzzfeed]
