In 2004 the writing group 26 and the International Society of Typographic Designers joined forces to explore the DNA of language. Twenty-six business writers were randomly paired with twenty-six graphic designers, given one letter each and asked to create a collaborative work that celebrated, explored, questioned, elucidated or subverted their character.
The British Library acted as a resource for information and inspiration, and the resulting exhibition – ‘26 Letters: Illuminating The Alphabet’ – was displayed throughout the Library building in the latter part of 2004.
