BONUS: Word As Image

Former Google Creative Labs CD, Ji Lee, has a new book Word As Image.  He's created this amazing video that shows off what the book is all about, or see below:

'Challenge: Create an image out of a word, using only the letters in the word itself. 
Rule: Use only the graphic elements of the letters without adding outside elements.


Word as Image invites you to see letters beyond their utilitarian dullness. It's about discovering the magic behind the unique shapes and infinite possibilities of letters and words. This book showcases nearly 100 of Ji Lee's head-scratching word images, along with tips to help you create your own and share them at www.wordasimage.com.'


If you like that, it's also worth checking out the Words Radiolab/NPR video short from last year.
