Alphabets and Images : Inspiration from letterforms by Maggie Gordon
London : B.T. Batsford Limited, 1974. First UK Edition. Hardcover. 96 pages : illustrations ; 21 cm.
ALPHABETS AND IMAGES
Here is an exciting and fresh approach to a few of the many interesting and varied ways of looking at letterforms.
A brief explanatory text introduces sections of Talking text ; Emotive letters ; Mass and texture ; Letters as patterns ; Looking at letterforms ; Movement within letters ; and Found letters. The latter section includes a photographic alphabet which involves re-seeing the environment in a way that such things as architecture, traffic lights, park benches and walls are resolved into letterforms.
This is an 'inspiration' book which will be of interest to art teachers and all those involved with the graphic arts. It will help also to create an awareness of the interesting letterforms that exist in our immediate surroundings.
Maggie Gordon is a lecturer at the Faculty of Art and Design, Brighton Polytechnic.
