W is for Wesselmann

The Madrid-based design studio
CESS created their own sculptural alphabet, showing the power of typography. While V is for Vincent Van Gogh and W is for Tom Wesselmann, this is part of the 36 Days of Type project, which is a daily-based letter project showing the power of type. There’s also an A for Andy Warhol, a D for Damien Hirst and J for Jeff Koons. What about the female artists of our time? Besides Y for Yayoi Kusama and F for Frida Kahlo, many women are still missing out, though, so we await our hero typographer to step up to the plate.
