Alphabet: An Exhibition of Hand-Drawn Lettering and Experimental Typography

I'd love to have this exhibition at UPPERCASE, but based on the photographs posted on their exhibition website, it looks much too extensive for us to host in our small gallery. Perhaps a collaboration with ACAD could bring this to Calgary... 

"Focusing on an ordinary subject that we see each day, often in the hundreds of thousands, Alphabet presents 26 letters as more than just shapes for conveying information. The 48 artists and designers in this show conceive and interpret the alphabet in surprising and inventive ways, ranging from graceful and polished to witty and unconventional. The 60 alphabets featured in Alphabet were created by artists in North America, Europe, and Asia, and represent work from well-known typographers and designers as well as rising artists and design students."
