I’ve also been working on the next set of letters for ALAW. These have to give a sense of ‘place’.
When I was small I had several books that had fancy capital letters. They fascinated me. I want to draw on this and create a book that will have the feel of a fairy tale both in the text (creating a fantasy place) and in the presentation. Something unashamedly pretty I think, with gold (or at least gold paint).
So far I've only got experiments and an outline text. I'll need to do 2 letters a week to catch up
I’m not a writer but I’ve found that the constraint of having to use the letters of the alphabet in order and having to produce text that fits into the space has helped.
