Alphabetic Illusion




Designer Marc Böttler used stacked wooden blocks and combined them with tricky camera angles to turn children’s playthings into a cool set of optical illusions. He calls it his Klotz Type Experiment. Because they only form letters when viewed from certain direction, it might be one of the first official anamorphic alphabets that could be used on a computer. Read more after the break.......

At first glance these wooden letters appear to be nothing more than a few blocks organized on a table to create a standard alphabet. However the letters are actually illusions of perspective, viewable only from the photographed angle, certain elements stacked high while others layered below are actually far in the background. Designed and photographed by Marc Böttler, see the full alphabet here.
