35 quirky and cool makes to bring a touch of typography to your home.
Clare Youngs presents 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, make your own vintage fabric "T", or cheer up a child’s bedroom with a bright alphabet pillowslip. 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—all you need to do is decide which letter to create. It’s as easy as A, B, C.
