Amazing Type in the Sky Photography

Wdd Logo.
November 18, 2010

thumbIn 2005 German student Lisa Rienermann spent a semester in Barcelona. While standing in a little courtyard, she looked up to the sky...

"I saw houses, the sky, clouds and a “Q”. The negative space in-between the houses formed a letter. I loved the idea of the sky as words, the negative being the positive. If I could find a “Q”, other letters should be somewhere around the corner."

Lisa spent the next few weeks running around and looking up to the sky, and slowly found all the letters of the alphabet. This became a project for her Typography class at the Folkwang School of design in Germany, which has won her several awards and recognition.

In this post, we present Lisa's work in both poster format and for the first time, Lisa has also kindly provided us with the large image of each of the letters.

Here's the full poster containing all the letters:


And here are all of the letters at large sizes. Note that some letters have more than one variation. The exclamation and question marks are included at the end of the post.
