Experiments in Typography — 22
Today’s letter is an ‘E’ built from individual spools of thread. I wanted to use something with a circular shape today so I tried a few things, buttons, coins, jar lids. But they were perfectly round with smooth edges and I wanted something a little rougher – I achieved this with the spools. I like the way they’re uneven with little bits missing around some of the edges. I also like the way the shadow falls inside the spools adding a nice grainy texture to each one.
