Hair alphabet by Shurong Diao

Words

This hairy alphabet by Shurong Diao is inspired by Chinese calligraphy. Shurong Diao wanted to build a connection between Chinese characters and Roman letters.
She states: “By using the distinct feature of Chinese women: their long black hair, I created this typeface to uniquely imitate the effect of painting English alphabet with ‘ink’ on rice paper.”
