This set of Alphaclamps is an exploration of tools and their form. From the I-beam to the C-clamp, the latin letterforms seem to have a chicken-egg type relationship with the letter-shaped tools that bear their name. Curious about how the other letters would work as tools, I set out to explore the mechanical utility of the forsaken letters of our alphabet.
