We Did Not Try Hard Enough

From the Haunted Letters series: These double posters were made for an exhibition in Berlin called “Israeli Shots”. The Brothers Grimm tale of Hansel and Gretel was drawn into the Latin ABC, Each letter depicting the tale’s scenes from start to finish. This new singular “type-face” was used to embed various readings into the posters: DAUGHTER FOR BETROTHAL / SEEKING A MALE SCION / OF TEUTONIC STOCK / TO JOIN IN WEDLOCK / TO AN INFANT BRIDE. / TO STRIKE ANEW / THROUGH SACRED VOWS / LONG SEVERED ROOTS.
