The Alphabet

This Sunday evening is short on news, but here’s a beautiful little hand-drawn video by Alessandro Novelli, an Italian multimedia designer. Each letter of the alphabet morphs into the first letter of a font name, and—accompanied by a wistful tune by French singer Fréhel—the end product is an elegant bit of calligraphy in motion.

    Very sweet and clever, and beautifully drawn – but I would have liked it to have morphed slightly more slowly, so that you could really see the letter and the font more clearly before it changed to the next – some were gone almost before they were there.
