Getting Upper: Graphic Designers and Artists Reconsider the Alphabet, a project in which 26 California-based graphic designers and artists were each asked to reinterpret one letter of the alphabet. The project resulted in 26 limited edition prints of letters of the alphabet that are fascinating and beautifully designed. Above is D by Gail Swanlund (left) and M by Martin Venezky (right).
