Unusual Letra Series 1 - Polybius Alphabet

  • Irish Nicole Abenoja

The "Unusual Letra" series is a playful experiment of typography and communication. I take unusual, coded or relic forms of communication and transforming them into the infamous letrasets. It inhibits a deep meaning on the popular use of the Latin Alphabet and what came before and after it. The first series is of the "Polybius Alphabet" or Polybius Square was an Ancient Greek cryptography. It consists of five numbers: 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5, each are partnered to represent an individual letter.
