Friday Night Flicks: Thread Typography

Traditional methods of lettering have long interested me, but I also enjoy creative alternatives when I come across them. Tonight’s flick by Pramodchavan shows an artist creating decorative letter forms with string and ink and paper.



This weekend you might want to try making shapes with string and ink and paper yourself.

    It’s a lovely thing to do with children.No, not inking kids and squishing them between paper, although….
    I’ve done a string-ink exercise with 8 and 9 year olds and some of the patterns were amazingly sharp.
