Annals of typography: the leg-hair font

A 20-year-old design student at Japan's Tama Art University took up a challenge from one of her professors and created a font fashioned out of leg hair according to the site SmartStop. Mayuko Kanazawa twisted and folded individual hairs of a hirsute friend into uppercase and lower-case versions (that's the uppercase above.)

I saw this picture a few days ago. I can't decide whether to be fascinated or grossed out.
