KAREL TEIGE
ALPHABET, 1926

Teige’s revolutionary Alphabet was an original combination of typography and photography. Graphic design is combined with photographs of the dancer Milča Mayerová in postures that symbolise individual letters. This was a clear manifestation of Teige’s view that photography could fundamentally change the nature, structure and quality of modern typography.
