What’s in a name? Maree Coote reveals the missing link between word and image.

This award-winning designer has developed her own graphic language of illustrative typography,

making images of all kinds using only the letters of the subject s name and existing typefaces.

This ambitious collection of fabulous faces includes punks, presidents, musos, muses, heroes and horrors,

in a gathering of unforgettable humanity. Also includes an insight into the genesis of the ’Fontigram ‘,

the inspirations and working practices of the designer, and a smattering of type history for the aficionado.

The result is a delight for lovers of typefaces, humanity and serendipity.

“A kind of alphabetical sculpture — the missing link between word and image.” 

“ A fresh tribute to the creative possibilities of letter-form art: stylish and sophisticated.”

“..spinning visual poetry to a new level… dazzling”
