Whether attempting to stem boredom during a long trip or experiencing the excitement of exploring historical time periods or far-away places, the pre-digital toy View-Master served as a transport to another place. Like writing, it was a way of seeing. Along the way, it provided delight and entertainment.

Kursiv #1-7 exhaustively uses every letter from a single sheet of dry-transfer lettering to create a suite of fragile typographic snowflakes. Each image, suspended within glassine film as part of a View Master slide, suggests a logo for an impossible business – or an alien script – caught between one dead media and another.
