Seeing this gorgeous work by Italian illustrator and designer, Andrea Manzati makes me want to get out some clay and actually make something.  Andrea built these letter forms by crafting plasticine clay into anatomical parts on top of a design as you can see above.  The end effect is a fun and slightly whimsical take on human anatomy and typography.

Created for Italian magazine, IL (Intelligence in Lifestyle), Andrea says, “The article was all about the meaning of life nowadays so we had the idea of making a “living” lettering, with muscles, skeleton, veins and an heart, that looks similar to the plastic mannequins used to learn anatomy at schools.
