Typography having a romp with the Kama Sutra Alphabet

London-based French illustrator Malika Favre, who illustrated Penguin Books’ new cover of the Kama Sutra in 2011, decided to develop the original set of 7 letters — featuring copulating figures in various sex poses — she created for the cover into the full alphabetical set of 26 letters. Good idea, we say.
