The Anatomy of Typography

“Letters are organisms and typefaces are the species, all classified similar to biological taxonomy.” Thus is the concept behind Andreas Scheiger’s Evolution of Type, an anatomical study of the alphabet. For the first time in medical and typographical history, fonts go under the knife for a full biological analysis.

I’m very concerned whether these letters were volunteers or part of some sort of font trafficking ring. I hope for the designer’s sake that this is an example of the former. We wouldn’t want to see the Helvetica Robot get upset.
