Is it still type? continues Space typography, in form and content. This series is an alphabet of hybrid letters, a mixing of Arab and Latin alphabets.
The forms which come out can make us think of letters , but they are no more letters really ; their meaning and concept have vanished, they can be used freely as such.
Arab calligraphic forms bring curves and sensual delight, Latin typographic forms bring rigour in movement.
