Oakland wood

These wonderful wood letters of Oakland (by Zuzana Licko) were created by Evan Christie (School of Visual Concepts, Seattle, WA). "Typefaces of the past, many of which are now staples of modern graphic design, took physical form as moveable type," said Evan. "I wanted to use a typeface that was never meant to take physical form, and Oakland was the perfect typeface to use because it embodies the birth of the digital era where nothing is tangible." Christie milled the maple down to type height and etched the letters in long strips using an epilog laser engraver. They were then cut off the strip into individual blocks.


I'm curious about the prints:)
