A letter a Week 2014

Well, here it is nearly the end of 2014 and I did not start my letter a week project until this week. I had better get busy right?

We have to create two alphabets. One is an anything goes type of alphabet and the other is specific to a place. For my anything goes alphabet I thought it might be nice to take what I have learned so far about pattern making and use letters instead of art. I have always been fascinated by letter forms. In design school I used to love to take the old fashioned sticky "letraset" letters and make all types of art with them.

Once I got onto the computer I saw what fun can be had with letters besides making words......

So here is my first alphabet so far: They are all Baskerville Old Style.


Letter a
Letter b
Letter c
Letter d
Letter e
Letter f
Letter g
Letter h
Letter i


That is it for today! Have a nice Thanksgiving everyone!

Wonderful work ! I love letter shapes, my first degree was in typographic design...I wish we had had computers then ! I remember Letraset, amazing how it's so completely obsolete now that it has become trendy to use it again !

my goodness, this is fabulous! I never thought of doing this....you've made some delightful patterns - love the idea. I started my first alpha right at the beginning of the year, made some good progress,then let it fall away....this may be the push I need to dig it out and finish!
