In 1926 dancer Milca Mayerova created a pose for each of letter of the alphabet, with the intention to choreograph a twenty-four poem sequence called Abeceda by Czech writer Viteslav Nezval. Composed into a book by Karel Teige.

Can't quite get over it.

Watch a video for close-ups of the letter forms; the image above doesn't quite do it justice.
