Typography – The Art of Letters

Why not try your hand at a typography collage? Typography is ‘the art of letters’ while collage using paper and different shapes to form images. The two can be combined with great effect. By simply sticking different materials onto paper or fabric you can create an effective, colourful piece of work.

In this video Katie Allen, an illustrator from Bedford, shows us clever and creative ways to form letters which she develops into a collage.  All you need is plain paper, paper to make the letters from and some glue – simple!

Why not give it a try and show us the result.
