building block typeface

I’m highly drawn by the abstractness of Building Blocks by designer Christapher Wayne. The idea is that each letter is as simplistically represented as our brains will allow, all the while fitting each letter into a uniform size. Intrestingly enough it isn’t designed to convey information easily. Here’s what Christapher says about it:

Spaces should not be used. This is not really made to convey information clearly so the user should be willing to let go and let the message make it to the reader if they are willing to take the time to decipher.
