Kama Sutra Cover Art Inspires Full Typographic Alphabet, Prints and Animated Teaser.

The Kama Sutra Alphabet is a personal project from French born and London based illustrator Malika Favre. In 2011, Malika was commissioned by Paul Buckley at Penguin Books US to illustrate the new Deluxe Classic Cover of the Kama Sutra by Vatsyayana (shown below).

Using the original set of 7 letters she created for the cover as a starting point, Malika then decided to develop the full set of 26 letters as part of an exhibition project.

The Kama Sutra prints are currently on show at Pick Me Up from the 18th to the 28th of April 2013 at Somerset house in London and below is her animated Kama Sutra Teaser for the show:

Selected animations by Maki Yoshikura, Patrick Smith and Robin Davey.

Each letter of her alphabet is available in a very limited edition of 25 screen prints for £45 each, printed on Mohawk superfine 270gsm, signed and numbered by the artist.
