Twenty-six Animals by Jane Tam

This animal alphabet accordion book contains 26 composites of the animal and human form. Images were silk-screened onto cream BFK rives paper and accompanied by the Helvetica font type.

This work was inspired by Thorsten Dennerline's (MFA, 1997) Twenty-six Words, which was created in collaboration with Peter Verheyen.
