Collaged Alphabets

Illustrator Linzie Hunter usually creates playful hand-drawn typography (go to her website to see her great sketchbooks). Here she has created a collage called 'Atomic Alphabet', which incorporates cleverly sourced material on a retro space-age theme.
Sir Peter Blake is well known for his extensive collection of memorabilia. He created his collaged alphabets in 2007. Each letter is surrounded by vintage illustrations, postcards and other found letters and imagery. Some of the images are immediately linked to the letter, others need to be more carefully considered.
