Movable Rubik Type, 2012
Wood, Rubik’s cube
2.2 in. × 2.2 in. × 2.2 in.

This Rubik’s cube serves as a handheld wooden letter press that can reassemble the anatomical structure of six historic typefaces: Blackletter, Baskerville, Poster Bodoni, Futura, Helvetica, and Gotham. The letter “m” was chosen as it is the standard from which all other em widths within an alphabet are derived. The use of a Rubik’s cube serves as an analogy for the evolution and complication of typography over centuries.
