Playing with Type book

This book, Playing with Type: 50 graphic experiments for exploring typographic design principles by Lara McCormick should be a great help in imagining all of the analog experiments you can conduct. Once you land on 3 concepts, how might you express these concepts? What kind of line can you create with string dipped in ink? A brush? Cut paper? Moving type on the scanner? Be inventive with your mark-making, and make lots of experiments.
