Show & Tell

I found this typeface in one of the books I got from the library today, it's called Lettera 1. The entire book is just full of different typefaces, but this one stuck out to me because I'm attracted to effective use of white on black. The curve of the letters reminds me of pieces of metal wedged together making only a slightly forced curve. This typeface feels very industrial to me.

Because the other book didn't show any text embedded in a design, I also got Text & Image by Mark Wigan. Within the book I found this artist Ben Freeman who created these four typographical knifes made up of hurtful words. It's titled Vicious Statements. I enjoyed the irony of the design.
