Sunset in Letters

This art-book contains samples of the typeface “Sunset in Letters”. I have incorporated sunsets into the font design. At first glance, it is just a normal typeface, but if you look closely you will see a silhouette of sunset. The impression you get changes depending on where you stand. You can see a magnified version of the illustration on the right page. This art-book contains 26 capital letters but I would like to introduce you to a few letters.

Sunset in Letters,是一本值得細細品味解密的繪本。作者收集了自我記憶中一系列能夠引發夕陽西下聯想的小情景,並只提取夕陽灑下的投影描繪出懷有寂寥情愫的單色剪影畫。然後在「擬態」這一主題下,根據各個英文字母的字體結構,將剪影畫巧妙的隱藏在了字母之中。而每一個字母又是一個隱喻的故事。這個作品也是作者的碩士畢業作品。獲得了2012年的MCJDA 佳作獎。
