Research the history of the typeface.
Use the alphabet (converted to outlines in Illustrator) to create a set of 5-9 icons based upon imagery/art/industrial or product design from the time period. (cut up with the knife tool and reassemble)
Your icons should work together as a system and relate in terms of level of detail and scale.
Do not change the letters scale.
Do not skew or distort the letters.
Do not fill in the counters.
Do not change the underlying path of the letters.
