Do you remember a Sesame Street clip from way back when that showed images of all the letters of the alphabet from signs and landmarks in New York City? We loved that one! Of course, typography and NYC are two of our biggest loves. How perfect that photographer Joanne Dugan has created a collection of wall art to bring the concept into our homes.
Joanne's photography series began 10 years ago as a teaching lesson for her son and culminated in a book, ABC NYC: A Book About Seeing New York City. Now she has made available several sets of the letters, which you can buy as individually or as a complete alphabet. Her website has a very fun feature that allows you to spell a word and preview the finished product. Letters are self-adhesive and printed with soy-based inks on non-toxic vinyl. And the prices seem pretty reasonable! Check out The Alphabet City for more info.
