A Sandwich Made of Type

An in-class typography project: Each student had to bring in a sandwich in a brown paper bag to graduate typography class. The sandwiches were "shuffled" and laid out on a long table. Then we each chose two of them to describe: what they were like, what characteristics they possessed, how we thought they were made. And finally, what faces they would be if they were fonts. (Someone suggested my turkey on wheat was like Cooper Black.)

We then took our own sandwich, and choosing a font, cut and pasted letters (with real scissors and glue) onto a paper plate to recreate our sandwich. (My sandwich was remade with Trade Gothic.) Interesting.
