I make a modest living organizing letters – using a variety of fonts – into words and phrases. Some are poignant, most are just silly. I sell these textual word art designs on a variety of products – tees, mugs, iPhone cases, buttons, etc.
The Alphabet City is movable eco-friendly adhesive art that can transform any playroom, office or children’s bedroom into a mini modern art gallery, but the letters-as-art project began more modestly. Artist/photographer Joanne Dugan used her hip collection of letters to inject a playfulness into teaching her young son. Now you can own these vibrant, colorful letters as pre-packaged words (READ, KID, NYC), custom words (children’s nicknames, OWTK, anything you can think of), or the entire alphabet in a couple different sizes. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to various non-profit education & literacy groups.
Looking for a unique, last minute Christmas gift idea for a cool tween or your spouse? I gotta think Alphabet City is going to WOW any recipient. And if you want to buy me OWTK for my office, I’d happily accept the gift!
