Ladies of Letters

A big-hearted collaboration called Ladies of Letters with my studio buddy Amy from Saint Gertrude, I hand-lettered a full alphabet of drop caps called 'Alphabet City' with the artwork being lovingly letterpressed by Amy.

We made a movie about the process and the prints are available for sale, with some of the proceeds being donated to the Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation, an organisation that aims to raise the national language, literacy and numeracy standards, especially in remote and marginalised communities.
