The quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog is the most famous pangram in English, that is the most short sentence in which all the 26 letters of the alphabet are used. For this reason, it is useful to test the graphic aspect of the fonts, because all the letters are immediately on hand.
26 letters are hidden in buildings, road markings and street furniture. They’re subtle, still, they don’t shout to be heard, but they’re everywhere. They’re fonts of urban life, a continuous and silent stream of typography, an A to Z entirely realized in London with the collaboration of Andreu Llorens.
From an idea between design and photography, the index of 26 characters, printed, bound and now in your hands.
