Top-shelf Typography

Came across these examples of sexy typography recently which had me all hot under the collar. 'Sexy' and 'typography' are not two words which usually go together, as anybody who has spent time having to set type will confirm. These illustrations however are a totally different matter. They are the work of Malika Favre, whose work I became familiar with because of some similar figurative illustrations that she created for the Sunday Times magazine.

They are part of a project entitled Kama Sutra which can be seen here. Working with the visuals and positions from the ancient book she collaborated with animators to give movement and life to some of the letters for extra XXX appeal. The individual letters are reproduced as limited edition screenprints and are on sale for £45 each.
