Plastica poster (2001)

A manifesto / poster / experimental 3D Hebrew typeface.

This short manifesto, addressed to 21st century’s Hebrew Type Designers (a.k.a The Plastica Manifesto) was published back in 2001, in the form of a poster. The words were printed in a very small size, next to “giant” 3D letters, standing on their own feet. Kisho Kurokawa, the famous Japanese architect who died in 2007, commented about these letters in 2001: “These could be described as letters turning into insects. Witty, and powerful enough to give viewers many kinds of thoughts such as tribunal, historical, cultural and the meanings of the letter itself…”
