Abaceda: A Jazz Age Alphabet

Jazz alphabet

Abaceda: A Jazz Age Alphabet is a striking piece of modernist design. Now reproduced by Magma in association with Redstone Press, the alphabet was originally designed in 1926. It uses the combination of Karel Teige's typography combined with the ballet poses of dancer Mllca Mayerova to produce something that's very identifiably of that period. 

Though it's perhaps not the most useful alphabetic aid (J and Q are shown together), perhaps the athletic poses will inspire instead?

The print costs £25.
