collaged tangram alpabet | new work

in a bit of a spur of the moment type situation, i recently decided to make something i’ve wanted to make for years. a collaged tangram alphabet! i’m obsessed with alphabet books (i collect some) and pretty much anything alphabet related so this one really has been a long time coming. it was so fun to make and definitely fits my style very well i think. i’m actually in the progress of making another alphabet related thing, but i have bigger plans for that.

i made this over an evening and once i had made the individual shapes – which probably was the most time-consuming part – it was pretty quick to put the alphabet letters together after that. i must admit i cheated a little and looked up how to build the letters from a few different sources, and chose the ones i liked best. it definitely would have taken a LOT longer otherwise.

i made the individual letters within an a3 document – so if you’d like me to put up prints of these (or the whole a-z piece) somewhere do let me know. now i’ve made this i really want to make a few more now. i’ve got the bug!

if you’d like to commission a collage, pattern or anything else from me, for personal use, your blog, licensing or for a publication, you can contact me via email.
