My alphabet collection has grown to include some less traditional means of reproducing text. I collect letter punches like these:
and I collect other ways of cutting letters.
Who doesn’t like cookies? Cookies shaped like letters are even better since you can spell out messages — at least until people start eating!
I have big ones
and little ones.
Someday I plan to do an artist’s book with these
and another with these.
Since there might be problems preserving a book with lettering made from alphabet noodles, I plan to use photographs to reproduce the text. (I do note that I have had this box for more than two years, and despite living in an old house that has regular visits from mice and occasional problems with mildew, nothing has damaged the noodles so far!)
My collection also extends to things that aren’t strictly alphabetical, like Chinese character rubber stamps
and punctuation and other glyphs in the form of push pins and magnets
People think it’s funny that I have alphabetized my spice shelves in the pantry.
How else would I find anything?!
