Classic graffiti lettering and experimental typographical forms lie  at the heart of street culture and have long inspired designers in many  different fields. But graffiti artists, who tend to paint the same letters of their tag again and again, rarely design complete alphabets.Claudia  Walde spent over two years collecting alphabets by 154 artists from  thirty countries to show the many different styles and approaches to  lettering within the graffiti and street art cultures. All of the  artists have roots in graffiti. Some are world renowned such as 123 Klan  (Canada), Faith47 (South Africa), and Hera (Germany); others are lesser  known or only now starting to emerge.Each artist received the  same instructions: design all twenty- six letters of the Latin alphabet  within the limits of a single page of the book. How they approached this  task and selected the media with which to express their ideas was  entirely up to them, and the results encompass not just street art but  sketches, sculpture, digital art, and photography. 400+ color illustrations
