There are so many crazy ways to write the ABC's. It's a great creative exercise - it would do me well to try my own when I hit a creative slump. I'm amazed at the ingenuity of some of these. This collection of alphabets was gathered from the portfolios of artists, photographers and design students around the world. Credits are noted where known. If you see any with missing credits, please share in the comments - thanks in advance.
[UPDATE] We've updated this list to include an additional 19 examples. See the updated collection here
