Another typographer who I discovered whilst researching into object typography is Vladimir Končar.
He creates his typefaces all by hand, using materials that we often do not consider as art. Things such as; beer caps, pubic hair, cigarettes, paper clips, soil etc. I personally think that the responsibility of collecting the pieces to create and compose these typefaces is what fascinates me about his work. I also find the way he puts the collected pieces together, very simple but yet effective.
Below are a few images of his work that I really found interesting:
