Description:

"10 years ago, i painted a burning letter “a” on one side of a salvaged window whose glass looked-into another world.  On the other side, the letter appeared in the sky above a deep valley where its unique light fired the rods and cones in the eyes of a typeface designer named 53947. The sublime vision “opened his mind to the possibility of everything” and granted him newfound omniscience.  10 years later, he attempts to capture the essence of this enlightenment in a new design, inspiring a journey that will encourage him to re-evaluate his perception of what is known." - lewis lain
