The starting point for the font William Wilson was an alphabetical letter found in the notebook of the Art Nouveau architect Lucien Weissenburger. Sun Young Oh developed this basic letter into a font, finding her own style so that the font consists of very particular forms. The artist was also inspired by the font "Karloff" in the working process which is divided into positive, neutral and negative styles. William Wilson has two typefaces - one horizontal, the other vertical. The name was taken from the title of a story about doppelgängers by Edgar Allan Poe.

The work was created within the framework of the seminar “Re-Collection”.
