Typolyrics

Eye magazine turn us onto this new book from the publishers of Slanted magazine. Focusing on the relationship between fonts and music, the book asks several young designers to create ‘typographic interpretations of song lyrics’. As pretentious as that sounds, it makes for interesting viewing. The book is split by genre, using specific fonts for specific types of music. Songs vary from the likes of Faithless to David Bowie’s ‘Man who sold the world’ (pictured above) and, as you’d expect from this sort of project, not everything works. But enough of it does, so it’s definitely worth a closer look – which you can do after the leap.
