The Kama Sutra Alphabet is a personal project from French born and London based illustrator Malika Favre. In 2011, Malika was commissioned by Paul Buckley at Penguin Books US to illustrate the new Deluxe Classic Cover of the Kama Sutra by Vatsyayana. Using the original set of 7 letters she created for the cover as a starting point, Malika then decided to develop the full set of 26 letters as part of an exhibition project. Each letter is a very limited edition of 25 screenprints, signed and numbered by the artist.

Last summer, before moving to Amsterdam, Tiago Pinto took some time off and in between dinners with friends and days of fun he spent some time doing “not-so-far-from-work-stuff”, like photography or graphics. It was a way to keep his mind busy with different subjects, ideas and techniques. One of the topics he focused on was typography. Fonts. Typefaces. Type Faces.

That’s how The Type Faces project was born, starting with the Futura’s good looking mid-life man, the Italian Bodini with a fashionable moustache, the sad Courier New and the not so handsome Comic Sans.
