Avant Garde poster

All 26 letters of the alphabet set in Avant Garde Gothic, designed by Herb Lubalin and Tom Carnase. This typically Lubalin-esque arrangement of interlocking and overlapping letterforms was originally commissioned by the Type Directors Club (New York) as an illustration to an essay Lubalin wrote for Typography1 — The Annual of the Type Directors Club. Here shown in recreated poster format. Date: 1979
