"There seems to be an added energy released when art and science embrace" – Ken Arnold, the Wellcome Collection

Taking inspiration from human anatomy for a typography project led to unexpected yet delightful results. My custom typeface – with its dimensions based on the geometry of a backbone – was developed into a physical alphabet of vertebrae-shaped printing blocks. These printing blocks also connect together to form a life-sized human spine.
