Julius Raymund Advincula makes "provocative" font from cleverly positioned body parts

A typeface formed of folded skin and limbs features in today's Dezeen Weekly newsletter

The latest edition of our Dezeen Weekly newsletter includes the Body Type typeface which Filipino graphic designer Julius Raymund Advincula created during his spare time in coronavirus lockdown.

One reader is "horrifyingly fascinated" by the typeface, which Advincula created by sitting half naked, looking in the mirror and cleverly folding his skin and limbs.

The letter P, for example, was made by the designer using his finger to fold down his ear. A nipple takes the place of an O and the letter C has been formed from Advincula's belly button.
