Cartas a Mirtha

Carta a Mirtha (Letter to Mirtha) is a project by Sebastián Barrante in which he explores different dimensions of asemic writing. In this way, he creates different families of graphism based on their visual characteristics, which are then inserted into a conventional format, such as the letter, reflecting the concepts of writing, reading, and publication.

The project is a quote from the Argentinian artist Mirtha Dermisache’s works, who used several conventional formats to insert her illegible writings, creating a union between the graphic nature of writing and the graphic nature of conventional formats in publishing.

Carta a Mirtha is composed of 5 letters, each one with a different family of graphism.
