View this wonderful stop motion animation made by N9ve. The Alphabet 2 - a horn book video experiment - is a developmental spelling video where each character visually represents the meaning of the word itself. Playing with different techniques and materials into little and big spaces, but always focusing on Helvetica font's proportions.

A while you're at it watch their first Alphabet video, where each character is the initial letter of a font name.
