Pablo Neruda wrote over fifty odes to everyday objects. A lemon, a typewriter, a woman gardening--these ordinary elements and essences of human experience are transformed by the lyrical language of Neruda's odes. Each of these three interpretations of Neruda's Ode to Typography; takes a very different approach, but all emphasize the typeface as art.
