What is the most memorable piece of typography you have come across? “There are many favourite pieces in my mind, depending on the field. But for illustrated type, I’d say the cover of the Kama Sutra from the Penguin Books Classics Deluxe Edition, by Malika Fabre. Those illustrations/letters of the bodies are just so perfect, playing with the negative space and the geometric yet expressive shapes. It’s the perfect piece that hybridizes type with illustration in a brilliant way.”
