Letter Art: 35 Stylish Letters to Make and Give by Clare Youngs
Here are 35 quirky and cool projects to bring a touch of typography to your home.
Clare Youngs comes up with a range of simple projects, using inexpensive and easy-to-find materials, so you can make your very own colorful alphabet. For a stylish display, adorn your mantelpiece with bold letters made out of recycled fruit crates, or spell out ‘eat’ in your kitchen with graphic cardboard letters. Make your own vintage fabric ‘T’, or cheer up a child’s bedroom with a bright alphabet pillowslip, or why not make an ampersand carrier bag to turn every trip to the supermarket a stylish one?
All the projects are clearly explained with step-by-step artworks, and there is a tools and techniques section so you can brush up on your crafting skills, so all you need to do is decide which letter to create. It’s as easy as A, B, C.
