a collection of symbol-based encodings
Cryptografia is a collection of coded alphabets – a secret space with undiscovered symbols that initially remain unrecognised. In the inexhaustible depth of cryptography, this work starts at the intersection of known characters and the border of the unreadable. These play with our habitual mechanisms of perception without immediately deciphering them. This provokes unconventional approaches and chains of associations and enables the characters to develop a power that breaks with traditional typographic forms and could catalyse developments in type design.
